Was happily reading the Trump thread. Then the page opened a new page and this ad appeared. I didn't click on any link.

Anything to do with you?

Hi, orlantina!

Hm, has this happened since? Do you remember seeing this on Mumsnet before it redirected you?

What device and browser are you using?

This has happened too, but it is a video of something. I'm on an HP stream laptop.

It has happened before. Not often. Firefox on a laptop.

Just happened to me as well. Desktop, IE.

Any screenshots of this advert on the page before it opens a new window? Sorry that it's being so intrusive, we'll try and get to the bottom of this!

I just had this too. I'm using Chrome browser on my phone

I don't think it's on the page as a link. It opens all of a sudden.

Hi folks,

Is it always the same ad that pops up? And definitely not associated with something that you're already seeing on the page?

It happened again. Except the ad didn't appear. Just this.

I am using chrome. Keep trying to post and thread just jumps into an ad or onto an entirely new thread without me doing anything. It's massively pissing me off.

Not sure if connected but I just got redirected to this page when trying to get to active. I'm on chrome/android.

I keep getting an advert for Fred Olsen bloody cruises 😡

And it shuts my MN window so I have to re-open it.

I'm using Safari on my iPad and I really am going to download ad blocker this time

Don't know if it's related, but I was reading a thread about grammar school the other day and suddenly got redirected to a Mumsnet page about the 11+. I went back to the thread to see if I'd accidentally touched a link, but couldn't find any such link anywhere on the page.

This has just popped up, shutting down my MN window.

I was googling holiday resorts last night.
