There are no popups on eBay.  I you are seeing popups your computer is infected with Ad ware.

I think the OP means the stupid 1 person isviewing this per hour, or 1 person watched this item this week or the even stupider bell popups.

 

It's irritating.

 

So is the autosave on here - if it autosaves while you are typing, it loses characters. No surprise there  with these boards.

Slide your cursor around it - it will pop up with a list of your 'notifications'.

Looks like they took out the really irritating one when you mouse over 'my ebay'

I wish ebay would stop letting 5 year olds play with the code.

Max is right. It's your computer, not eBay.

Are you talking about those ridiculous sliders that cover up your gallery pic with irrelevant watcher info?

 

If so, I agree. Get rid of them. Very annoying and distracting.

 

Seeing the product pic and price is far more important than being regaled with how many SEARCH BOTS visited the listings in the last hour.

Lucky you. I've been getting them for about four months now. I'm clearly on eBay's guinea pig list. It's an understatement to say they're annoying.

 

They cover up a third of the gallery pic and if you try to scroll down to read the description while the stupid thing is there, it follows you down the left-hand side and covers up the description too.

 

 

It's like a fly buzzing in front of you while you're trying to watch a movie.
