Technical website issue: How can I remove red AARP horizontal bar on website?

Since today, the red AARP horizontal bar on every page no longer stays at the top of the page but moves when I scroll down through the page. It is blocking portions of each page. Is there a way to make the red bar stationary at the top of the page? It's annoying. I think Chrome just updated today so it probably has to do with that browser. Thank you.

I have been having this same problem and it is very frustrating.  It is now March and still hasn't been fixed.

And still no activity on what appears as a simple correction. AARP is not even trying to collect ad revenue and just pushing their own desire to get more subscribers to shift to automatic renewal. Every time I now play Daily Crossword, the only game I can play, I kick myself for doing a 5 year renewal 2 years ago being loyal to AARP. Bet I do not do that again, if I renew at all.

 I feel the same way, have been a member for 25 years and having the games blocked

by" sign up and renew" does not sit well, especially with members only games. It is too aggravating to play anymore and I am appalled by this stupidity on their part.  I also had about 50 renewal notices in the mail.  What a waste of resources, they started  way before the renewal date and went on way after I had paid already.

I am having the same problem and tried to get help with AARP chat. They offered to share my screen with them that I refused outright. Total waste of time. This is the second time of asking for help with games, the other was the nag screen on marjon(?) and the same lack of understanding.

Same here.  It covers part of the Word Wipe game when I try to play it.  Very frustrating!

  1. I used Microsoft Edge and opened Word Wipe. It opened as a small screen and I could see the whole game. If I click on the square to expand the screen, it does not all fit anymore, because it gets too large. So, keep it small and it fits.

A. Try using Microsoft Edge. It opens as a small size that fits for my screen. Just don't

   expand the size or it does not fit.

Having the same problem.  Not just one task bar, now two task bars.  Searching for a different game that is free.  What a bummer.

Yeah, I have been having the same issue and it's annoying. I even tried disabling my adblockers to see if it would stop and it didn't. I hope they fix this soon, because like others said, playing the games right now is just impossible.

i use a website that blocks ads and it doesn' help with this problem.  Seemed to be fixed a few months ago and now it's back.  Love to play games but this is so annoying and the website keeps changing from games to benefits and it's all over the place.

Ditto!  I'm ready to give up on aarp games.  I can't see the whole game.  Not fun anymore.

Hi Skipper! We are aware of the issues and are working to correct it. Turning off the ad blocker resolves the issue, and turning it back on resurfaces it. -Sue J

Same problem here, also using Chrome.  I think it's poor web design.  Hopefully they fix it soon, since the games are almost unplayable as it is.

It is sort of doing the same thing with Firefox, a browser which I NEVER BUT NEVER have issues with AARP'S web site. I believe it is NOT the browser but something fouled up at this web site.

 

I found that if you move the screen and wait a couple of seconds, the red line re-positions itself in the correct place.

I tried that and it seemed to work, but then when I move the page just a little to see all the game, the red bar is back.
