asking again ...

i ask because the only time i ever experienced anything similar - about a year ago - it was specifically when using google chrome; and only via facebook; and only sometimes if i clicked on a link to something else such as an advertisement or news feed.

i have never had a problem using firefox.
can't say about internet explorer or the new version of that since i never use either one for anything.

I am using Safari on my ipad, Patrice. Thank you for looking into this....I tried to log out and just read new posts, but same pop up problem occurred. I have cleared my cookies, etc......again, only happening on this site. Very strange!

Its one of the ads here, for sure. Not anybody's iPad. There are ads that can hijack the browser and one has gotten into the rotation on QB.

will your iPad allow you to install and use a different browser?
if it does can you try that to see if the problem happens on the different browser also?
i'm trying to gather clues from yoooze guys to pass on to tech support.

Patrice, I decided to do a test on my phone along with posting from this computer. When accessing the QB on the phone with no ad blocker, I got what I'd consider the 'normal' amount of ads around the postings and in between posts. When I accessed a thread with pictures, some had the pop up ad just below the picture and some did not. So I thought that it might be the method used for uploading pictures. I used a 16-page thread for the test to see if it was happening all throughout a thread.. From my computer, I posted a picture using the picture frame icon and then posted another picture using the Manage Attachments method. Then I pulled up those postings on my phone. The picture uploaded by the picture frame icon did not have a pop up ad. The picture uploaded using the Manage Attachments had the pop up ad. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy 7. The browser is not indicated, but Google suggests that my phone service uses Chrome. I hope this helps to shed some light on this issue.
