We understand disruptive advertisements lessen the enjoyment of your FlyerTalk browsing experience. Please post all disruptive advertisement reports here; your full report (see above) will assist Internet Brands / FlyerTalk in handling these expeditiously. Admin / Tech attempts to respond to all reports speedily, but eliminating problem adverts may require communication with advertisements suppliers or devising technical solutions that may require time. (Internet Brands operates during customary and usual work hours on the U. S. West Coast; holidays, weekends, etc. are observed.)

To see how to include a screen shot in your post, once you have taken the screen shot follow the instructions "Inserting a photo or image from your device into a post:" in the first post in the thread http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/techn...mage-post.html

NOTE: Internet Brands and FlyerTalk discourage the use of software that modifies your FlyerTalk browsing experience (e.g. ad blocking software). IB / FT declines all responsibility for the use of such software and can not provide support or assistance if such software is used. As well, we remind you IB / FT can only provide FlyerTalk free to members because of the financial support of advertisers; using ad blockers denies IB / FT income that would normally pay for your free community membership and browsing experience..

Posts advocating, suggesting, or recommending use of ad blocking etc. software will be summarily deleted.

The constant requests to advertising servers are still happening, and crashing my PC. I reported the issue in 2017 here: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/29141579-post477.html


Please fix this urgently.

browser history when i get the constant ad redirects that hijack flyertalk on my mobile

the amazon gift card redirects on my mobile device happen to me every visit to this flyertalk.
my images are same as those in the end of the 2017 thread

ONLY happens on this site, no others. only on mobile device, not desktop
Chrome history shows the last flyertalk thread which became the amazon prize redirect, wth a weird 3rd party address in my browser history
this has got to go. i understand the site owners need to make $ from ads but this is not the way to do it.

one of them must be an intentional misspelling of google syndication because it's tpc.googlesyncdication.com

I can't post screenshots because most of the time I don't see the ad but rather have it BLASTING SOUND out at me. I don't even need to be near my PC when this happens. Only on FT.
And only on FT does my screen freeze up constantly...I mean constantly. I have to close and reopen if I want to do any hopping around.

For me they seemed to go away for a while but are back much worse than before. The fake Amazon contest is most frequent but the "your phone is badly damaged one" comes up occasionally as well. They're so bad that the site is almost unusable for me on mobile devices.

It's gotten even worse. I now can't even look at the threads listed in a forum without getting the fake Amazon redirect. So the mobile site is unusable for me with Chrome on a mobile device.

I am sorry I was unable to read any of the previous posts on this issue as it took me 10 tries just to get here without a pop up. Every other time I open a flyertalk thread I either get the Amazon ad or the your device is severely damaged one. I'm on a Samsung S7 using Chrome

And unfortunately it's apparently against the rules to even suggest a solution... go figure

It's becoming abundantly clear to me that not only does nobody care, they approve of these ads. Ridiculous.

Yeah. I'm using a computer now. I've tried probably more than a dozen times today and can't even scroll through a single page using a mobile device without getting one of the ads that kick me off to a fake Amazon site. The site is unusable from a mobile device for me until this is fixed. Considering I'm going on a transcon tomorrow and will only have phones and an iPad I guess no FT for a while unless it gets fixed. I've in iOS and have tried both Chrome and Safari.

If experience bad mobile ads, and If using Chrome on your mobile device, try:


Load chrome://flags/#enable-framebusting-needs-sameorigin-or-usergesture in the browser's address bar.

Switch the status of the "Framebusting requires same-origin or a user gesture" experimental flag from default to enabled.

Restart the Chrome browser.

I'm also getting the fake amazon redirect using my iPad. I can't even use FT on because it comes up so quickly.

I was also getting it on Tivocommunity on my iPad, but the admins there were able to get the ad company to stop them.

It has rendered FT completely unusable unless I'm on my desktop.

Thanks, but I just tried 12 times to cut that so I could paste in on my iPad and couldn't do it without getting kicked out of FT. I'll try mailing it to my iPad and doing it that way.

So I mailed it to my iPad and added it to the URL bar and that "Framebusting requires same-origin or a user gesture" doesn't come up. Bunch of other experimental settings but not that one.

Interestingly, the Framebusting comes up on my desktop as an option but I don't see it on my iPad. I even searched for it on the flag search on the iPad. It says it doesn't find it. It did on the desktop.
