New glitch? are pop up ad permanent?

mattgirl

It seems I am now getting pop up ads. When i first open up the forum i get one that covers the whole page. Other times it is a smaller one asking me if i want to download ebooks. I am thinking that one will take me to the ebooks available here on the forum.

I leave FL, and several other pages, open in the background in chrome for Android. Since last week's update I occasionally get a pop up ad when I open it for the first time in a while. I was *guessing* that non-members always see the ads and when I first have my connection refresh there's a gap in the security/log in status and I see the non-member pop ups also. I'm not seeing them at all during a continuous session browsing posts etc. Or maybe it was made that way.

I'm using Chrome, and haven't seen pop-ups at all.

I have to think it was just a glitch as it happened several times yesterday but I didn't have it happen when I opened up Fishlore this morning and still hasn't. I actually seldom ever log out. I just close all windows. Maybe I should actually log out from time to time. I don't know enough to know if staying logged in all the time can cause issues or not.

Ad Block plus will get rid of all ads and its free. It doesn't work well on my phone though.

I stay logged in also. I close windows frequently, but I log in automatically when I re-open FL.
