Ok then, my conclusion is that an iPad is useless if ya can't block ads! And I will probably download that blocker too, thanks for suggesting it.

You're welcome. I don't like having to use one, but if it's the only way to enjoy the site, so be it.

I installed the adblocker link above and it took care of the problem.

Btw. Pop up blocker is on....
Same here: use iPad, pop-up blocker is on, ad looks just like Post #1 with background darkened, only happens on FGRV. Tonight it was almost impossible to use the forum, so I downloaded the ad blocker as stated in Post #3, and so far the ad has not shown up.

Why do I only get this in FGRV, and only since this thread was started. As soon as I opened the thread the other day, I immediately had the ad/with background darkened pop up on my iPad.

I use an ad blocker/popup blocker too. Never an ad on this site. Just now I opened the page and 7 ads were blocked. Never saw them.

At some point this site will join others that I've encountered that detect you are using an ad blocker. They give you a choice of disabling the ad blocker or leaving the site.
Got to pay the bills some how.

I agree, Glenn, but this seems like it may be a different situation. The ad blocks the use of the site. Most of the time, even if there is an 'X', it doesn't work, and the only way to move on is to open a new window. I've been lurking here for a couple years now, and don't mind the 'normal' ads. In a week or two I'll disable the ad-blocker program and see if this problem has disappeared.

The problem is with a link a member posted here.
Once I opened it the problem started.
Iím sure everyone that opened that link is experiencing the same thing.
It wonít allow you to navagate.
Itís not a matter of blocking ads, itís a matter of not being able to use my computer.
Iím glad Robert found a solution because I wasnít able to view anything on this forum.
Sometimes thatís a good thing. When those that think itís neccessary to interject there worthless two cents worth.

If that's the case, it sounds like the link loaded adware to your browser. There may be a fix that doesn't require an ad blocker to resolve:

Clear your Safari history
Clear Cookies
Clear the Cache

This will unfortunately remove any site passwords as well, so you'll have to log back in to any sites where your password was cached (like FGRV). It will usually correct the issue of popups that can't be closed, if they were caused by an adware script.

Thanks Robert, Iím not the sharpest tac in the box. I did go in and do just that.
Pop up blocker on and ad choice options turned on.
There are so many you canít turn them all off.
I visit very few sites / forums. I can always count on FGRV site for ads for all the things I have been looking to buy this day.
I believe my problem started when I tried to open a members link. He sells a replacement lock for boler. Thatís when that ad popped up and I couldnít close it.
I never was able to open that site because of that ad. And it block me from going elsewhere.
After I used your fix, I went back and was able to view His items for sale.

I did try that first:
Safari - clear history & website data - this removes history, cookies and other browsing data
Safari - Advanced - Removes all website data
Cold reset

In fact, I just tried it again, removing the adblocker and all of the above, but the same ad as in the picture in Post #1 covered my screen in no time. So back to the Apple App Store to download the adblocker program again.

Thanks all for the suggestions. The add blockers work but a word of caution. I never load anything from a link. Get it directly off the App Store.
