    Amazon interruptions here.

    Only here does Amazon started to interrupt my browsing. I have to close to get rid of it. This was happening 1-2 years ago and it stopped, obviously because someone (moderator ?) did something to prevent it.

    It's another of those that are also called highjacker or redirect ads-- like the one that was on here last year.

    Very annoying. I find it's been happening a lot (as in many times a day) when I'm on my iphone. Also happens on the ipad. Not on my laptop, thankfully.

    Here's a screen shot of one of them

    Hey QuiltnNan,
    This was the one that highjacked my iPad using safari with IOS12. It showed up in the Photos section. That's where the screen shot was taken. Then when I tried to access this thread (QBhelpcenter: Amazon) using my IPad it showed up here. In the Photos section, the ad was as shown in the screen shot here. I had to shut down QB to get it gone. In the QBHelpcenter section it popped up as shown in the screen shot here, but when I tried to see if I could back out of it it morphed into the Amazon ad that others are having problems with, but I couldn't get a screen shot.

    I’m getting a lot of this junk also on the site. Just started one day last week. Sure is annoying trying to read and enjoy the board
