    Hey,

    Do any of you get those annoying new type of popups that just start and appear on your browser window? Not the ones that open a new browser window, but the one that appear and overtake your opened browser. You know the ones that after a few seconds gives you a button that appears that says "SKIP THIS AD"

    Anyone have this problem? Does anyone know of a way or a tool/program that will stop these *beeping* ads from coming up?

    Maybe (this is for Fire Fox.) go into your tools--> options--> content, and disable (uncheck) Java and JavaScript.

    Might work.

    I've seen those on a few sites now..I tried blocking 1 once & the page wouldn't load..once I un-blocked it the page continued to the page I wanted.

    With Firefox and ad-block I don't see adds, the only downside I guess is that I'm no longer supporting the websites I visit. Java, and flash should fix things to make adds less dangerous/obnoxious using their technologies. Anyway I noticed that some video's asking for codecs will open up a window asking me to download the codec but won't let me close it, very freaking annoying.

    Have any of you tried using the host file to block the offending site that tries to open a new window?

    I don't like to disable java scripts on my browser if possible, I don't know the host file would work in this case or not?

    There is a trick that you can use.... click the link that says skip this ad and proceed. You can skip that "skip this" ad.

    they are called inter sectional ads and you can not block them. its not a very traditional "ad"...

    just google that...

    From what I understand your referring to redirects, or am I confused? Like basically an add that appears as its own page before allowing you to view the next page? Also I have yet to see an add in Firefox so I find it hard to believe that theres an add that can't be blocked.

    Hey mountain rage.. I will give you an example of what he means. I have to PM you the page due to content (that means NSFW) PM me if you want to test it out

    Thanks EM just confirmed it, not even Jorge's apparent unblockable ad is unblockable with add-block plus.

    Has this ever happened to you???
    Ad-block plus, it takes spam out like magic :icon_thum​

    By running that, will I lose lots of site content that one may want?

    its just a header redirect, meaning you get forwarded to one page, then forwarded to another. nothing you can do about it trust me. i do it in programming a lot, not for ads though... vbulletin does it all the time for example.

    I'm pretty sure it's true what you're saying. I'd imagine Mountain rage is blocking practically everything aside from pure HTML essentially.
