This just happened to me as well.

I get this sometimes on Facebook as well

It happened to me last night too for the first time. As soon as I clicked on one particular thread, I went straight to App Store - three times!

This has been really annoying on my phone this morning! I'm not knowingly clicking or touching anything!!

Been happening to me too. Am quite glad it's not just me.

I just noticed an ad at the top of the page for the game but I'm fairly sure I didn't touch the ad.

Just happened to me. Very annoying!

Just happened again and definitely not touching a advert at all (was trying to go into this thread)

Happened to me on old iPhone and I haven't upgraded ios7

Just happened again when I opened this thread!

Extremely irritating.

And me, I wondered what was happening.

Me too.
Only started this morning.
Annoying.

Was just about to post this myself.

No, fecking Dragon City, I do not want to download you and your in app purchases. hmm

It's only that ad I think. But extremely annoying as the App Store is opening each and every time I load up a page which had the Dragon City ad at the top.

It happened to me when clicking on this thread. I'm on android.

I think I'm on the old iOS too.

Me too.

Using the mobile site, Definite?

Because there's a clue it's MN and not our phones, if you're on Android.

Yep has happened to me twice already and I can't even see an advert, so definitely didn't click one confused. I'm on the mobile site.

Another "victim" here. It's happened a few times since yesterday. I have not clicked on any adverts (and in some cases there were no visible adverts on that part of the page).

It's just happened to me twice angry

CecyHall Thu 14-Nov-13 07:51:44

Yes it's been happening to me a lot.

In fact it happened as I clicked this thread.

This happens to me too, and not just on MN. So annoying!

I'm on ios7, not sure if that makes a difference but I'm watching this in the hope that Tech can tell me why grin
