See title. The only way I could even comment is to open a new browser.

This is exactly what I have been experiencing, and what I reported, but without pictures. Hopefully something can be done about it.

The problem most likely isn't with the forum, but the ad provider. Their ad server is probably slow and doesn't completely load, so there's no option to close the ads, or they have a scripting issue that affects your browser. Try installing adblock. Works on PC, Mac, iOS and Android.

I don't allow popups on my browser. It means I can't automatically read private messages in a separate window, but that's a very minor inconvenience.

cant close

I haven't had this sort of problem! I run an adblocker no idea what it does but on occasion have other problems of the computer going into its own world.

usually a hard boot fixes it!

good luck

bob

FWIW This is how it is handled on another forum.

I use Safari on my Macbook. I have "block popups" checked in Safari prefs. I don't see these, just he ads in the sidebars. I have complained to several sys admins on several sites about non-relavant ads, especially drugs, skin, etc. Some admins have made efforts to change. Most blame third party ad providers and just cash their checks.

I too run an ad blocker. But, I whitelist sites that I want to prosper, like FGRV. That means sidebar ads, but not pop ups. No site should use pop ups. On some sites that I would like to whitelist the ads are so disgusting I block them anyway. The ads on FGRV are sometimes relevant and rarely disgusting, so I help the owner out with a bit of ad revenue. I value this resource.

YMMV, john

I too use a iPad when accessing this site and as time goes by the problem is getting worse. FGRV so far is the only site where I experience this issue.
Btw. Pop up blocker is on....

Sid, I also had the same problem with my iPad on this site only.
I installed the adblocker link above and it took care of the problem.

Thanks Robert, I don’t get any ads on this site anymore! ��
