    Your image looks like a normal green ad window, but without the ad. I suppose the system tries to transmit the full ad image to you, but encounters some reliability problem, so it aborts.

    I get frequent green ads if I browse Edaboard without being logged in. Clicking 'Close X' makes it disappear.

    Probably safer is to use Alt-F4 to close the window in focus. If this is malware or and advert, the 'close' and 'X' may be clickable regions that lead to other things.

    It's better to share your questions and answers on Edaboard so we can all benefit from each others experiences.

    I use Ad Blocker software that might cause the Close problem I see occasionally.
