It is not the smaller ads that are the problem. The colonial ad cover 80% of the web page not just imposed within the page.

If you're using a Mac it would be in the upper left hand corner next to the Apple icon labeled Firefox.

Click on Firefox at top left, then

click on Preferences

which will then have tabs on the left for various sub-menus.

Click on the Content tab on the left,

then select Block Pop-up Windows, about 1/2 way down under Pop-ups heading.

GenXair had most of this in Post #10 so please review that post as well.

Good luck!

Peter

Offensive??

Not me.

When I want to do a lookey-loo of new Airstreams, I know Colonial will have them on You tube.

Secondly, without ad income, this site probably would not exist. The tech advice is invaluable. (Besides that, they are pretty nice about letting us prattle on in The Breakfast Show).

Jeeze.

Colonial's videos (and Patrick in particular - he is great!) were instrumental in our decision to purchase our Airstream. That being said, I don't see any ads since we use an ad blocker on all our devices.

You should not be seeing ads like that here. Can you take a screenshot and share it? Also, can you get me the URL where the ad takes you? I can then investigate.

This is my screen when I open Airforums on my PC. there is not a problem on my I Phone.

While this is not a Colonial ad it illustrates the issue.

I see no reason for any ad to populate 80% of the page when I open it.

I use the AirForums app on my android phone and Nexus tablet 90 % of the time and never deal with any of those issues.

BUT when trying to sign on at home that one pops up so quickly and several times it's a race to get the password in before it pops up again.

(The same one Howie shows)

That is the newsletter subscription box. It has a little x in the top right corner to dismiss. We use cookies to save your viewing preferences so if you are purging those you may see this again.

There is also a settings option in your usercp that will help with this. http://www.airforums.com/forums/prof...do=editoptions

Scroll all the way down the list of options to make changes. Then hit save.

AKA the daily "nag" per Janet. This thread covers it:
