    Pop up ad

    This new pop up ad from ultra is messing with the size of my page. It jumps around and makes my page get really small. Is there some way I can get rid of it? When I press the x it takes me back to the previous page. It has really become annoying.

    I'm getting that ad too. It's really annoying and doesn't want to close. Hope someone figures out how to get rid of it.

    I normally don't have to deal with the pop ups but this one is very annoying.

    I don't notice it so much on my PC or laptop but it's a real problem on the iPad.

    Same here- it's very annoying. Then when I get rid if it, I'm not sure how I did it!

    Have any of you sent PatriceJ a screenshot, or URL info? That would be the thing to do.

    Annoying in the ipad. Just this minute it dissappeared but not sure why. I hope it goes away because It crossed my mind to stop reading the forum. The little time I have has to be a positive experience.

    I agree with everyone...the ad by Ulta is very annoying as it bounces up and down the ipad screen. You can't touch the "x" to get rid of it which is frustrating and makes reading the threads no so enjoyable.

    Oh my goodness! I came here specifically to see if this was a problem throughout or just with me! I use my iPad almost exclusively and as someone else posted, I find myself actually trying to decide if I have the "energy" to fight the ad. I do hope something can be done.

    The pop-ups are driving me nuts on the iPad also. I've checked my settings to make sure the pop-ups are off, but they still keep showing up. I just tried to get a URL for the pop-up, but now I can't get them. This has only been happening for the last week for me.

    Me too. I think it goes away after X number of minutes--usually by page 3, when I sit down to read new posts at night. Not on my iPad at all this morning though.

    The problm would disappear IF we had to PAY a subscrition to this site. Since we don't, we have to put up with the ads. They pay to use this site.

    This is the same reason I cam here too. It does disappear after a few pages, but then reappears a little bit later. I hate it.

    Go to your computer and get on the place where you can Change or Remove software. Mine had a new program that I don't know where it came from so I removed it and all those goofy things quit. I had been fighting it for a month.

    it wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't popping around so much. it makes me want to rethink using this site if this is going to be the way things are from now on here.

    I'm having issues with pop-up ads at the bottom of my screen when using my iPad. If I try to close it, it opens it instead.

    It pops up only when I am on my iPad. It does not happen to me when on my regular computer. I dislike it too!

    I would be willing to pay if it did not cost a fortune to be rid of the ads.

    I'll bet the pop-ups you're seeing AREN'T from paid advertising, they're just sneaking in. If you will get a screenshot to the admins, they can look into it for you.
