that keep openign up in new windows, one after another, and each time one opens it makes the main window jump and I lose what I've been typing?

It is seriously annoying.

OK, y ou've got to sell ad space, but this is excessive.

don't you have a pop-up blocker .. you can download them from or elsewhere

I never get pop-ups any more

Sainsbury's, Salon Lines and Show Creative have all opened in the few seconds since I started this thread.

Which took three attempts because of these b***d pop-ups knocking me about.

Go to and download their free version of pop-up stopper.

But this is new. Until a couple of weeks ago I was only getting one ad when I first opened up the Mumsnet site. OK, perfectly tolerable. Then a few days ago I started getting two Sainsbury's ads. OK, irritating, but tolerable. Now I'm getting as many as half-a-dozen.

Don't know why this is happening PrettyCandles - 2 pop-unders capped at one view per day on non-talk pages is what we have agreed to. Think we might just ditch the whole thing as it's proving way too irritating for everyone. Apologies all.

I don't usually have to worry about pop-ups on this site but today the blocker is clicking away like mad so I know a lot are trying to come through. I thought it was just my laptop until I saw this thread.

As soon as Tech gets back from his late night shopping we is dropping it, honest .

Hi, these are all gone away now.

Bliss, thankyou. I gave up last night - I didn't manage to keep up with shutting the ads down, and eventually there were so many up that they crashed my system.
