Anyone else having issues with nuisance ads again? There is one for a Cif 'eco' refill that pops up full screen midway through an article and any attempt to close the popup just redirects off the site.

Another one I get occasionally is a Decathlon ad which tends to trigger at the bottom of the article by the comments and won't let you scroll back to the top of the page.

Both of these are using Chrome Canary on Android.

Is it just me or does anyone else have issues too?

Cif one swamping my screen yesterday (iPhone X , Safari).

 

Also got ' congratulations Safari user you are our 10000 visitor click here to claim your prize'  today. No thanks.

Yep. Chrome on iPad, the whole page getting replaced with a spam vodaphone ad.

Same for me with Safari, Chrome and Firefox. So using Firefox Focus instead. Which seems to behave

I read exactly the same complaint on another forum.
Perhaps the fault is with the third party ad provider.

Yep, couldn't use the menu the other day due to location of ad on Android phone, managed to do an initial expand but couldn't select the option I wanted, ridiculous

I don't have any problems with pop ups. I'm on a Samaung with AdBlock for Samsung installed.
