Is anyone else having trouble with audio break-through? All of a sudden your computer spits out a segment of televised audio and then cuts it off just as abruptly, because it shouldn't have been happening in the first place?

On Air Forums, this is often associated with a ticker at the bottom of the screen which says things like "Waiting for ads.adaptv.advertising.com...". Sometimes that thing also hangs the website.

I'm wondering if that ad blocker mentioned above would take care of this nonsense. I understand that Air Forums must advertise to generate sustaining revenue, but when those embedded ads start faulting left and right, it's as annoying as hell.

Nothing like that on Mac laptop running Firefox with all ad and pop-up blockers toggled on.

I had a problem with Colton RV popping up on my IPad for a long-time.

Even made a post about it. And then a lot of comments were made and then the thread magically disappeared.

Coincidentally the pop ups stopped as well. Same IPad.

Ex-Apple guy here, tired of paying through the nose for perceived quality. Only hardware problems I ever had were with my Apple products (all of them).
But they are packaged nicely.

Samsung laptop, faster and lighter than my Mac Book, with a good dose of McAfee has the same impact that my Mac did. Never a pop-up.

I get almost no popups.
Some websites ask that I turn it off to view, but I don't.

Right now, I see it's blocking 19 elements.
This is a good suggestion. It has stopped the constant pop-ups I was seeing. I now only see one if I have not signed in. Sometimes I have seen up to 35 elements blocked on this site.

Are there any mods monitoring this thread? Should I start cursing and swearing to attract one, maybe?


FYI, the Adware is crashing the site again today. As I said previously, we all realize that the forum has to advertise to defray expenses. But the Adware routinely faults and takes down pages with it, and this should not be occurring (Chrome browser, desktop environment, MSFT OS).

What happens is that a series of ad hangs culminates in an overload. Here's a screengrab of a representative set of successive issues followed by the inevitable page crash.

I'm no PC nerd but this audio ad thing and all of those waiting for's do show up on my system too.

I'm on 3 other popular forums and this only happens on AF.

AF management, any help on these?

The severity of it comes and goes. Yesterday was another bad day for it.

And I have the same experience - this only happens on Air Forums. I, too, visit three other forums with no problems.

👍

Interesting...I never stay logged in to any site.
I'll visit, when needed log-in, all ads & pop's disappear.
I used to use adblock but switched to 1Blocker when upgrading the MacBook Pro. 👍

I stay logged in continuously. Login status does not impact the ad flaws. Unbidden snippets of multiple voices are chattering as I write this.
