Default Hijacking Pop-up Ads

I keep getting these pop-up ads that hijack the QB. The only way to get rid of them is to totally close down the page and then open it up again in a new tab. It's only on the QB site too, no other. It's very annoying and it's definitely a scam. I am on my phone currently posting this because I can barely be on the QB site for one minute before the ad blocks me! I remember the same thing happening on the QB several years ago too. https://www.quiltingboard.com/qb-hel...p-t299991.html and here https://www.quiltingboard.com/qb-hel...s-t293398.html

I am using my Kindle, running on Windows 10, Google search engine.

Here is a screenshot of it.
