    I'm running a Dell with Firefox/Google with Ad blockers and I get the additional narrow banner under the first thread or post but no pop-ups.

    Don't get them at home with Safari on my iMac.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    this thread is a hoot, everyone has a different solution
    but no fix to the source of the difficulties, ok
    the patch is ad blocker, browser does not matter (yandex here)

    CharlieP I get nothing, which ad blocker do you have ?
    (I have AdGuard AdBlocker - free)

    Each browser has different flavors of blocker software built in. So each person using different browsers will get different levels of pop up adds depending on how effective the built in software is.

    For example on Apple mobile products, Safari has a built "Block Pop Ups" setting.
    It stops some of the pop ups..but not all of them.
    Some people may have that turned on..others not.
    In order to block all of them, you need to install a third party content blocker.

    Certain websites that rely heavily on adds will detect this software and trigger a window to pop up, which blocks the page content (you want to see) from displaying. News sites are the ones I experience this most.
    The work around is to click on the "Reader View" link in the left hand side of the address bar.
    This will allow you to read the article. Sometimes you need to be quick about doing this.

    EDIT: This site relies upon adds for revenue so we really shouldn't be using add blockers or content blockers..however the site is not even useable without doing so, so it's a catch 22 situation.

    I'm not sure any of the pop ups are purposely added.

    Take a look at the fairly new Brave Browser (brought to you by the creators of JavaScript and Mozilla). Built in ad blocker and NO MORE ADD TRACKING! Takes some getting used to, haven't looked back since making the switch.

    Do you have Ad blocker plus? I just went to Firefox add ons and there is now an Ad blocker ultimate available but I don't know if it is free. I don't get any ads.

    I use an ad blocker but it really doesn’t block all ads - just those nasty pop up ones that either prevent you from viewing a page or take you to their site.

    I'd get it here every visit and at the Drudge news aggregate.
    I think it's malware in the legit advertisements.

    Spent a couple bucks on Purify and have not had anything annoying since.
