We apologize for the bad ads. We hope in the new year to have a solution that handles them more proactively and quickly. Thank you for your patience!

I just had my mobile browser hijacked four times -- twice while in Omni and twice in the Support forum. I'm using a Google Pixel 2 with Chrome. Twice before it happened I spotted an ad with a green background and 8-ball (pool/billiards ball). However, there were two different hijackings -- I think the 8-ball ad was connected to a fake Amazon hijack.https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.fly...b1cc6289d6.png
The ad above is the one I saw a couple times before the fake Amazon hijacking in both Omni and Tech Support.

This was in the tech support forum and was a pop-up that appeared over the fake Amazon page.

This was from an Omni hijacking.

Ive been getting these same ads constantly for the past few days.
Makes it impossible to use FT mobile.

Also suffered with this one, though intermittently, on Omni. Can't back out of it, have to close the browser and reopen FT to continue.
Maybe it's punishment for going to bad Omni ;)

I've gotten in on this board and on the United board. Definitely working to lower my mobile FT usage.

Got a page hijack on the BA forum this morning, using Chrome 63.0.3239.111 on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 running Android 4.1.2

I do not use the Mobile site - this was on the full version of the site,
but on a tablet.

So far the Chrome setting recommended by IBobi has worked for me. This specified thread was the worst I had experienced, hijacked every time I opened it. I applied the setting and so far not a single hijack. Latest Chrome on a pixel 2.

Here's a link to the fix

I get the same Amazon one as others and also the same virus one as others. I am using Samsung note 3 and chrome. Sometimes for the "virus" one to go away I need to completely shut off my phone. Very inconvenient and it happens regularly.

App store redirect from the home page on an iPhone 6s with 11.1.2(15B202) using Safari. Happening so frequently, I was able to use my phone's record screen feature to show it in action.

Problems With Flyertalk On My Pixel
 
Hi all,

MODS please move to another area if this question is not appropriate.

I am having issues viewing FlyerTalk on my pixel and wondering if anyone else is having the same issues? Every time I go into a specific thread I get an Amazon.com advert which takes over the screen and I am unable to remove it. This does not happen on any other site. It is getting to the stage where I am literarily unable to use FT at all. This only happens with FT and no other website.

I have removed the Chrome app and reinstalled it, but this has not helped.

Anyone have any ideas?

Cheers
