    Banner ads popping up from bottom of screen

    This has just started happening for me. Is this new to Geo or has something changed on my computer? It pops up everytime I click on a new page.

    Yea, something has changed over the last week ... google seems to have moved some code / actions which were mobile only to the desktop. Will look at it over the holuday.

    I'm glad that -- So Far -- I haven't got this problem when using PALE MOON on my Laptop.

    Sounds like some sort of porn fetish site.

    Disabled my adblocker for geo only a few months ago. Very easy to accidentally fund shri's daytime drinking habit.
