Off Topic, but On Forum

pirate_girl(Zone7 NYC)August 11, 2012

Am I the only one now experiencing a new stream of ads, which cause this Forum's text to be reduced to a 3" wide column of threads down the left side of the screen?

Since I switched to Google Chrome (from IE) a while back, I have much less advertising interference.

May I just say GW, this is GHASTLY & could you pls. stop? It renders the forum virtually illegible, & is quite aggravating to the Reader.

I will be sending a copy of this to them directly.

pirate_girl,

I've had pretty good success getting rid of most of the ads by using the AdBlock plugin for Google Chrome. If you go to the Chrome webstore (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/home) and search for AdBlock you'll find it. The programmer who wrote the AdBlock software asks for a donation, however you will not be required to pay anything.

Hope this helps,
Tim

Here is a link that might be useful: Chrome webstore

Karen,

In GC, there ought to some tools / options. Make sure your pop-up blocker is engaged (it should be available there), but But I'd do first as Tim suggests and avail yourself of AdBlock, an excellent freebie.

Maybe your browser is choking on the hair product ad that (in firefox - this site is why I switched to this from IE, btw) makes the page go dim and sits on top for about 5 seconds.

But you never know, somebody's been changing things around here, no doubt, most of it good.

Here's a weird error recently I took a print-screen of.

Hi Tim,

Thanks so much for this lead, went there, did that, happy to say all better -- yippee! Back to happy forum browsing, thanks so very much!! Thanks you too Jeff.

Hey Purple yeah, the dimming hair care aid was pretty irritating too, my cue to get up & go do something else.

Glad to go back to normal.
