Colton RV Pop Up

Anyone else getting a new pop-up window from Colton RV over the last couple of days before logging in?

http://www.coltonrv.com/?utm_source=...AirstreamSites

Mac laptop with OS Sierra up-to-date, running Firefox 53.0.3, where I thought I had pop-up ads disabled.

Admins and Mods, are you aware of this pop-up from Colton RV? Is there some way to toggle this off in my User CP?

Thanks,

Peter

PS -- The site also seems to be using more video advertising too, which seems to slow things down a lot, and even freezes my laptop at times, forcing me to Force Quit Firefox. I clean Internet Cache and delete cookies very often.

PS2 -- Edit -- OK maybe I just turned the ads off?
>User CP
>Settings & Options
>Edit Options
>Miscellaneous Options
>Vendor Ads On/Off -- "Off"

Is this correct? Thanks [requires a Premium Account BTW]

I still see a moving image to the right, and the Colton RV ad. Should I turn off the entire right column in the User CP? This drastic option would seem to be counter-productive in certain respects (cutting off useful info) but if this is what it takes to stop the pop-ups . . .

Yes, losing the right column definitely seems to help! [also requires a Premium Account FYI]

In addition to popping up before login, the Colton RV pop-up also opens a new window when I am logged in, even though I did the two steps in the User CP detailed in Post #1:

-- toggle off ads
-- remove right column from displaying

There must be some way to stop this thing? I thought Premium Membership was supposed to take care of annoyances like this.

Thanks,

Peter

Curious whether you are also getting the Colton RV pop-up before and/or after logging in?

Thanks,

Peter

Dan, in Windows 10 can you toggle on a setting that blocks pop-up ads? Our Firefox is supposed to accomplish this, but the Colton RV ad is still the first thing that happens before I log in. Efforts at blocking it in the User CP setting here haven't helped apparently.



Is anyone else getting this pop-ad from Colton?

Thanks,

Peter

PS -- Memo to Colton RV -- the pop-up ad certainly discourages some folks from ever doing business with you . . . just sayin' . . .

Thanks Bob, I just updated to Firefox 54.0 (64-bit), and the Colton RV pop-up is still happening.



Is is possible that your 32-bit configuration is why you don't get it and I do?

Anyone else getting this pop-up?

Thanks,

Peter

Peter, interesting. I have the ver (32bit) as that is what the tech loaded at the original install a few years ago. I'm not sure I understand the difference either. Maybe mac OS vs Win 7 could be a contributing factor in the 32/64?

Good luck

Bob

Thanks Bob. I reviewed Mozilla's help page re: pop-up windows, which indicates that Firefox is not able to prevent all of them, so the solution is probably only something which airforums.com can do.



PS -- Now running Safari on the Mac laptop, and the pop-up did not pop up! Is there some kind of "end run" is going on with Firefox? FWIW

This is still happening in Firefox.

Anyone else getting this annoying pop-up ad from Colton RV?

Thanks,

Peter

PS -- And tons of cookies coming along with it!

I've never gotten it. I'm on a Mac laptop using Firefox. I also have a couple of ad blockers running.

Thanks David, what ad blockers are you using? I had thought Apple's OS and Firefox would took care of things like this.

Thanks,

Peter

Adblock Plus and Ublock Origin here, on the latest version of Firefox. I have never seen the pop-up.
