Hmmm, I tried other forums, but it doesn't happen....... I can't even click anywhere, the page is full of links for recipes!

I have the same issue as post 103 with my Blackberry Bold. Recipes cover the whole page!

I can only view/post tFS if I'm in Full Version....Not sure what to do.

I've checked and there are no ads on our mobile version. And certainly we don't ever have anything about recipies ... that's not our target audience. I'll mention it again to tech ... but they seemed to indicate it wasn't coming from us.

It really sounds like adware or something already installed in the Backberry ... weird. Sometimes adware/spyware is activated when you go to certain sites ... always one of your favs ... they seem to know which are your favs. I suggest that you find out if you can run some sort of diagnostic or anti adware/ anti spyware program on your Blackberrry. Maybe contact them and ask?

I'll let you know if tech support has anything else to add about this issue.

Tech support checked and said:

I don't see anything that could be causing it on our end. They might be
running ad supported apps.

Macy's rollover ad is running on just about every page I load whether I "roll over" it or not. Very annoying.

Right now i am unable to access any of the 'quick links' or edit my profile because of the GOK ad.
There isn't a way to disable it either.

I'm getting this pop-up as well, every single time I visit TFS it comes up.

Please follow instructions in the First Post of this thread (See instruction #5) ... so we can pass it along to tech support to get it fixed.

I don't know if anybody else is frustrated with this, but there's a "For Better of Worse" commercial that opens up and plays EVERY TIME I open a new page. It slows down my browser and I hate having to click the tiny X all the time. There's also this NuvaRing ad at the top that blocks all the drop-down menus...I can't see the Search box or Quick Links or Forum Jump because the ad is in the way.

please. is there a way to disable this?? being that in this forum one goes from page to page it is VERY inconvenient for this ad to pop up EVERY SINGLE time a new page is opened. it is making my experience on the forum super frustrating. (plus it's kind of gross - i'm all for commercialism but this is ridiculous & makes me never want to use, watch, buy etc. anything from a company that does this.)
