I have found a solution for the pop-ups. Not saying it will work for you, but it is very simple to try.

When you open any page on this site, get ready to log in at the top right, but sit patiently until the pop-up pops up. Patiently . . . [edit -- do not try to scroll up or down, or log in at all -- remember -- patiently]

Get your mouse/finger located where the "X" is going to appear in the top right corner of the pop-up window. It appears in the same exact place every time, which on my laptop is centered over the word "Password" in the log in area.

As soon as possible, hit the "X" and log in quickly.

After learning this routine, I have only had to deal with ONE pop-up for each session online.

If you rush things, you will get repetitive pop-ups IMO.

Works on my Mac laptop in Firefox and on the iPad Mini.

YMMV

I find it is helpful to check the "remember me" box and never log out. That has never caused me a problem on this site or any other that operates like this one.

Thanks Ken, curious whether you ever delete your browsing history and cookies, as there may be privacy concerns if you remain logged in on this site (and others BTW). In life, there is usually a price paid for convenience in my opinion . . .

I delete my browsing history, etc. periodically, but it is for computer efficiency not privacy. In my opinion, any hope of privacy, is lost once one connects to the internet, uses a cell phone, and, to some degree, every time they step out their front door. My solution is not to do anything I would be ashamed of if it went public. I would go crazy if I had to login and logout on every website I have an account on every time I used it. The only ones I intentionally log into and out of are ones where I conduct financial transactions, and most of them force you to anyway.

Ken

P.S. I feel the same way about cameras mounted in public. Don't think you can pee behind a telephone pole without the whole world watching you.

Solution: If you care, don't do it.

Most browsers have an option to specifically enable cookie exchange for a site and bypass the other settings you have for general surfing. The forum doesn't sell, loan or share member info and there is no financial data stored here. We work hard to keep the board secure and take privacy concerns seriously.

Even if you fail to log out, our server will automatically disconnect from your device after a period of inactivity (I think 30 minutes). Upon seeing your device again (when you navigate back to AIR) it will reconnect automatically if you have checked the remember me box and enabled cookie exchange.

How you manage cyber security is entirely a personal choice and we understand but we just don't have another way to keep you logged in and 'remember' your browsing preferences.

How do I stop the Airstream Daily pop up ad from displaying?

Comes in every few seconds on iPad, almost impossible to use the forum because of it. Screen blacks out when it appears. I have signed up,for it hoping that would make it stop, to no avail.

It helps to stay logged in when you close your browser {check Remember Me}, but be aware it does not always reduce the symptom. Some devices have a more difficult time than others dealing with this most annoying feature of the site.

The work-around solution in Post No. 29 of that thread continues to work on all my devices. The patience required to wait 5-15 seconds for the pop-up to appear the first time (without doing ANYTHING else) may seem like a long time, but it is far easier than the alternatives IMO.

BTW I do log out at the end of each session, delete cookies, and clean the Internet Cache so . . .

YMMV

A parallel thread has "popped up" if you will . . .

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...ng-143788.html

The work-around in Post No. 29 still works on all my devices.

Turn off java script in your browser.
This site is heavily polluted with all kinds of flashing ads, etc and that annoying ad.
The only way one can stand being on it is with java turned off.
Fortunately, unlike most sites, you still can get pretty much full function here without java.
Try it.

I just put this on the other thread about that pop up too.
I access this site primarily through my android.
It is about the most ad polluted site I visit - with all the flashing ads, etc.
So I always turn off java script before I come here.
It takes just a couple if clicks on my phone to do.
Turning off java gets rid of everything, except; it still allows full function of the board.
Try it.

I agree, along with the pop-ups; more so than any other site I visit. I just do not understand the strategy in annoying the people that supply the content and readership traffic that the site uses to sell advertising.
