if you signed out right after making the post, the system may not have understood that your post is one that you saw, based on the time of your departure. I believe this is occurs because of a clock time disparity between the information recorded in cookies on your computer and the time recorded by the server of your departure. It is akin to not closing the door all the way when you leave the house, and when you return finding it partly open believe there is an intruder in your home.

it's because of the vast right-wing conspiracy to engender mistrust and fear among the general masses, inclining them towards trust & belief in a power structure that rewards those least deserving

it's not really your post, it's a ghost of your post and you're the only one who can even see that it exists. Have your web browser exorcised forthwith!

is anyone else getting this popup when they come to the Sinfest forum? canceling it seems to just make it go away, although it sometimes crashes the browser.

the only thing i can think of that might be related is that these messages only started appearing after i upgraded avast to the latest version.

Not me. Of course, I'm using FF with AB+ because frankly, Sinfest's ads are not the safest.

Because you haven't disabled the browser plugin for some reason?

I am getting that too.
It'd be a real big coincidence that two people from this forum accidentally enabled a browser plug in.

Something updated, probably java.

It never crashes the browser for me though, I just press escape to make it go away. It is getting annoying, I might eventually read what the pop up says.
