Happening on my phone and desktop when I click certain threads.

It’s been happening since last night. Yes I’ve deleted my cache/browsing history.

Happening to me, too.

Yes all frigging day.

Princessmushroom Fri 22-Mar-19 14:39:22

Is there an official MN thread about it? I’ve reported this post so they can see

There are threads in site stuff about it. MNHQ know about it and are trying to sort it out

Yes, but BT in my case, and it comes up everytime I try to post from my iPad.

All the time!
It’s driving me completely batshit. It just won’t go away. Yes, I’ve cleared everything out too, but there doesn’t seem to be a way of stopping it.

The only way Mumsnet will be able to sort it is to single out which ads have the malicious JavaScript that triggers the browser takeover, and then report it to Google and the advertising partners. Which may or may not get it removed.

You can calm it down for a while by dumping your device's browser cache, but if the ad containing the redirecting code pops up again it'll happen again.

Yep, BT from IPad. Maddening

Pluginwall Fri 22-Mar-19 14:54:23

Yes BT in my case.

Yes, I am getting it - even on this thread and the thread in Site Stuff about it too. Basically it is making the site unusable.

MNHQ are aware.

MzHz Fri 22-Mar-19 15:04:41

Me too sad

e1y1 Fri 22-Mar-19 15:11:35

Yes!!! Been happening all blooming week and it's starting to aggravate me.

It is only Mumsnet this is happening on, have literally 15 web pages open on my iPad at the moment and they're all fine.

The popping up of another screen for the AIBU podcast is getting annoying too. Yes you bloody are being unreasonable to keep throwing it up every 10 mins.

WeepingWillowWeepingWino Fri 22-Mar-19 15:12:50

Yes, I’ve had it several times today.

ellendegeneres Fri 22-Mar-19 15:15:47

Yup, I’m on my phone. Fucking irritating keeps happening

Asta19 Fri 22-Mar-19 15:18:22

Is it down to who your internet provider is? I was getting the same only from Virgin, my internet is with them.

Saythatonemoretime Fri 22-Mar-19 15:21:34

Driving me mad!
