    Maybe it's the other sites being visited?

    OK with the ads. For some reason my back button using Mozilla is working now.

    I use AdBlock on my PC. On my phone this site just has banner adds. It sounds like your computer got the aids...

    Maybe my cell phone but It aint what it used to be .It is very squirrelly and ads seem to precede each topic area.

    So I went on my phone which is an old POS android and jump in and out of a few threads. They seem to be the stupid google Ad sense adds randomly added into content . In a few threads (seems random) there was definitely more than the banner adds.

    But if there are ads....it's why the website is "$free$" :)

    Please screen shot what you guys are seeing . Include what device and browser thank you..

    From a desktop computer google chrome is always the best browser for this site . The Firefox back button issue can be fixed by clearing cache / history etc in most cases

    Pop-up ads? Are you on a desktop or a laptop? You need a pop-up blocker. I use uBlock Origin. I have absolutely no pop-ups. The only ads are the top banner.
