    please post what type of computer/device operating system/browser you are using
    are you using an ad blocker?

    Sending you a PM. Thanks for all you do on behalf of QB members.

    I am also getting the amazon pop up that throws me off the QB site. Very frustrating. It only happens on my Apple ipad. I turned off ipad and turned back on but that didn't help.

Size:  265.9 KBThese screen shots show what's happening. I didn't know how to do the URL, so have to do it publicly. The first three are what comes up on my screen. The last two are a couple of results showing the results of my question to Google if the Amazon site was legit. No, it's not and could be a real problem. I have AdBlock (it was turned off somehow, but is back on with the pop up continuing), Safari/Google Chrome and am using an iPad IOS 11.2.6. It only happens on QB, sorry to say. Hope this helps get the situation resolved. QB is a favorite for me.

    check this thread:
    https://www.quiltingboard.com/qb-hel...k-t295205.html

    given that the problem occurs exclusively (or at least mostly) in the safari or chrome browsers on i-devices, i would recommend downloading and installing a different browser.

    there are a bazillion out there for mobile devices.

    i have sent this information to tech support.
    the screen shots will be very helpful to them.

    Thanks, Patrice. Glad the screen shots will help. I'll check into other browsers and for now will go on the iMAC (not mobile) for awhile. My nephew is a computer geek and may be able to walk us through what we need to do.
    The AdBlock app is working, because it just blocked a PM, probably from QB, because that's the only place I have that does the PMs. Sometimes computers make me feel like Alice going down the rabbit hole! :-)

    I also get this pop up. I am using an iPad and this is the only site that I get the pop up on. It’s very annoying.

    Yeah, and all of the threads have once again became inundated with ads (after every other reply in every thread). And I am Not reporting that this is happening on Chrome or any Apple OS. Many many members are having this issue, again.

    I have tried to use Chrome and Firefox brousers. I still get this annoying ad regardless of the brouser I use. Can someone tell me how to avoid them?

    I was getting something similar and the problem is your internet history. I was told to go remove it from the history - I just cleared my history. It was a pain to go back and put things I wanted i.e.: my bank and e-mail. But it was better than always dealing with that stupid pop up. It is not an Amazon ad - it is a fishing expedition for a scam/virus/etc.

    My solution has been to go to the "big boy" computer where I am not recognized, because I'm not checked in. Of course, I can't contribute any of my extremely worthwhile comments, but it's my way of avoiding the pop ups for now.

    Patrice, I do hope you managed to avoid the ER! You DID make the ultimate sacrifice!
