Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Had no problems yesterday, but one right after the other this morning.

Though it seems like we are talking to a wall here.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I had given up visiting the site using the mobile option. Forced to do so a bit while participating in the fantasy football pool. So painful.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Been 3 days since I reported one exact ad that still is causing issues. Why has at least that ad not been addressed?

If you have an Android device, have you tried story's fix that he posted?

I hadn't followed the thread regularly and didn't see it (on the previous page). I've applied the "band-aid" and we'll see if it helps.

Then, look for "Framebusting requries same-origin or a user gesture" and change the status from "default" to "enabled."

Finally, restart your browser.

Since doing this, I've found that the ads still pop up but they don't hijack your tab. Instead, the ad opens a new tab (or two or three!) which you can close and continue on the site.

I hope this solution works for everyone, it comes from what appears to be a reliable source.
Nice!! I'm running 7.0 Nougat on my S8 plus - it doesn't even open the ads in new tabs, it just keeps them at the bottom with a message that says "redirect blocked" - thanks for the workaround!

Thank you story. This really does work, but it's frightening just how many hijack attempts are made on this site!

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I reported the major take over issue with screen shots od the ad and the links defined a week ago. This same ad and same links are still one week later trying to take over my phone. How long after we report an issue should we expect a fix.

It's only been 519 days since these ad issues were first reported. Give them a chance to fix it, please!

Here's 10 in about 10 minutes before I gave up this morning. Mobile is not usable at all, again.

Amazon ads were bad again. You couldn't even access the posts for more than five seconds before I was told about my $1000 Amazon gift card.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Commercial Fleet is the latest one that hits multiple times on multiple pages.



And the 8 ball one is still a pain despite being reported almost 2 weeks ago.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I'm hit every single time now. I tried Firefox and it was OK for a day or so, but now it gets it too.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I'm glad the work-around I've found and posted here is helpful to so many of you.

I do wish it wasn't necessary and I also wish we'd see some response in this thread from IB about this issue. May we please have an update on where we are with you and your ad partner? This truly has to stop.

Without the work around, I may likely not be able to use the site in mobile at all lately. I am sure those without it likely have given up using the site.

Hit again multiple times. If not for the work around, the site would be totally unusable by me using mobile Chrome on Android.

These seem familiar as offenders.

Was the thread title changed again? It’s not just mobile.

Re: Ads redirecting on mobile

For what it's worth, I've had very few issues the last 48 hours. Hoping that's because work has been done on the issue.
