Problem on actor pages.

Go to an actor page.

Start scrolling down.

Eventually something higher up catches up with the loading, bumps the whole page down, and you completely lose your place.

It's infuriating and it's been happening since the recent update to the main title pages.

The problem as described is something that can potentially happen to any web page on the entire Web that contains an image with dimensions not articulated/defined in the HTML source of the page that embeds it. So, what happens is an image above the region of text that the page visitor is reading loads a little while after visitor has already spent several seconds reading, and the image is taller than the Web browser expected it to be at load time. So, in the case of IMDb, there is often ad placement near the top of every page, like a banner, and the ad may be quite tall sometimes.
