Pop ups

Mon Feb 26, 2018 6:10 am

Starting to get these pop up ads (Amazon
you’ve won a prize) that cannot be cleared
without deleting my entire history


The problem is getting worse, ideas,
suggestions?

Ad-blocker with the bonus that the load on your PC's processor will diminish quite nicely.

The Amazon pop up just started on my phone today. In another forum I read, they fixed the issue and said it was coming from an ad that redirects you.

The frequency is down, but yes, actually it occurred when I wa checking your reply with a different site (still amazon gift cards though)

Agree, also on iPhone. On a computer I could block it. Can’t here. It’s got to be source server side.

Heya all,

It seems like the pop-ups are hitting a lot of sites not just in our network.

Some more info here:

Your site is being hit hard. I can barely use a.net anymore and I barely visit now.

I got the “Amazon User” pop up exactly once on another site, but at least 50 times on Anet.

If you don’t care, that’s your right I guess. But the company supplying your ads needs to be replaced if you don’t want to lose traffic.

Try AdBlockerPlus. It's free and works great on this site.

It doesn’t work on mobile does it?

And how does it help A.net to block all ads? They won’t get money.

?????

You don't see the ads. That simple. Do a search on A.net for it. Even the moderators recommend it. Just like a Boeing, works good, lasts a long time.

Don't reward companies who use intrusive methods to increase revenue.
