    Well .... I spoke too soon. I give up. I was trying to type out a message when I got the pop ups again. I had no ad-block, Java was disabled, no ability to separate paragraphs or use icons, or edit (bold, etc). Then I got two separate whole page ads pop up in two separate threads. I have turned back on both Java and ad-blocker and no problems.


    I have added the link to these ads as appear in my bar:

    I don't know if I can continue to use WS. I am so frustrated with the all-day, every day problems.

    Spellbound, have you tried Tapatalk? Steep learning curve. Much easier to read. Harder to navigate, but zero popups. I thought i had a virus. Soon figured out these popups were only on WS.

    Thank you. No, I haven't tried it and would prefer not to add another app, especially to only use for this one site... I suppose it could be my last resort, though. Too many people here have not liked Tapatalk, so I am very hesitant. I will wait to see if we hear back from any mods/help-tech.

    I wish you good luck. Tapatalk was also my last resort 4 or 5 months ago when more and more people started having issues with pop ups here.

I clicked on "reply to post" and saw there was supposed to be a video. So then I have to go back to settings to turn Java on, watch video, then go back to settings to turn Java off to be able to continue using WS. Also ..... with Java turned off, my posts (as you can see here) do not show separate paragraphs, although I did separate them! And I cannot bold, use icons, etc.. ;-(. surely, this is not the accepted practice?
    I've been doing this too for quite a while because I simply couldn't use WS with all the videos running. It means that you miss things, and it takes extra time. Frankly, I would prefer to be able to follow WS with all the ads because I know that is revenue for keeping the site open. But, other than a day or two a couple of weeks ago, I haven't been able to read the pages if Java Script is enabled.

    Surely this is fixable.

    I got it to slow down temporarily by clearing history in all browsers. & clearing cache, too. Did a hard start / reset on both devices. A few days later it started again. But
    Not a single ad anywhere since using tapatalk. If I forget and log on thru a browser it starts again. I give up.
