Here's some food for thought: completely disable your advertising until you guys figure out how to get control of it. This would trade revenue for customer experience (temporarily).

Not resolved. Problem is back again. Just had 3 pop-ups today, and one a minute ago.

so far, you're the only person I'm hearing this from. Please post a screenshot the next time you get hijacked.

cheers,

I just posted a similar complaint before I found this thread. I can report that I received the Amazon pop up yesterday on iPhone X so the fix is not working.

Also here. I've stop using this forum on my phone and use blockers in chrome to stop all ads. Whoever is doing your ad network is garbage.

On my computer, Ad-Block-Plus is reporting that it is blocking 22 ads on a single page of Rennlist. Even then, the hijacking still occurs. This is absurd for those of us that are paying members, we should not be exposed to any ads.

I'm told we were sent an update from Google last evening indicating they have addressed the problem from their end.

I'm not making excuses, but it's definitely not just us.

Still happening! Why don’t you guys 100% disable advertising until you know how to fix it??
