When I visit TNF lately, at random intervals, my browser redirects to a full page ad for a software product. Doesn't seem to happen anywhere else.

Is this happening to you guys?

I get the same thing. Very irritating.

Don't get it myself, but I'm using Firefox with popups disabled and AdBlock Plus in use - I never see ads anywhere! Given that you're both in America, it might be a problem on the US server, which has been known to throw in "dodgy" ads before. Suggest you reactivate this thread in the Feedback forum:

I use Firefox also, need to check and see if popups are disabled. Is AdBlock Plus a Firefox add on or separate item?

I'm on Safari, hasn't happened for me (yet?), and I'm in the States.

What software company? That would be good to know so none of us would ever give them business!

It can also be configured to block scripts like google-analytics and revsci.net which can slow page loading.

Thanks. I checked and my pop-up blocker is on. I'll add that one as well.

Same for me, although I'm in the UK.

I had a period of about 6 days when I stopped getting e-mails to alert me to new posts or threads.

I contacted the Forum and they sorted it. Perhaps you should check with them.

Not having any problems like that (I use Chrome and live in the USA) but there is something else wrong with these forums right now...

If it happens post the exact url you was on here, Theoretically there can be XSS problems.
