Spell-check is diverted

More an annoyance than a problem.....

When typing a response to a thread on this forum I use an IE spell check. Quite recently when I click to check spelling it automatically jumps to check the postcode in the Compare Broadband ad on the right of this page. It then ignores the text I have just typed in the reply box.

To make it work correctly I have to first delete the postcode, and then click Check.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Not sure it's the same problem but when I use spell checker it checks the text then it goes to check '57' and some other text. Could be a post code. Never thought about it . Then the page jumps up and I close spell checker.

Testing. Yes it tries to check N7 9DP.

Yes, that's the same problem, although at least yours seems to check your typed text first before going on to the post code. Mine just "checks" the post code then finishes.

There looks to be some sort of problem with Compare broadband.It was disallowed on my privacy settings.It was flagged as a problem with someone on Malwarebytes.And now with spell check.
Tonight it is not in Privacy settings at all so maybe it has been sorted whatever the matter was.
