I had a similar thing happening to me about a week ago, but it was for being the “billionth google search” or something to that effect. The page would navigate away to that spam pop up page and made it impossible to view threads. I access the forum through chrome browser on my iPhone. I haven’t had any issues recently though.
I am unable to access PF using my Mac laptop due to hijacking. This just started happening within the last week or so. I am not having this issue when using my phone. I am wondering if other members are having the same issue?
Yes, both my iPhone and iPad. When it happens I just avoid the from Poodle forum for awhile. It’s annoyin and they should fix their code so it doesn’t happen. I never have this problem with any other forum.
I deleted the saved link, reset my ad blockers, saved a new link to my preferred start page for PF and it was ok for a short time.
Just tonight, it started again. I took screenshots the other day but apparently hid them from myself somewhere in my files
Device: Surface 3

The only problem I get is that adobe flash.. Even with malware bytes, it still happens, Not as often with the paid (used the trail) but with the free it starts again. It also only happens on poodle forum for me, and now boer forum but only since they moved to vertical scope platform. I wonder if there is a connection or if its just me, My computer was totally cleaned, no virus and no flash so I should not get updates, I even have those blocked but still it happens. Today so far is good, and it doesn't seem to be happening as bad as it was two weeks ago.
YES!!! it's so annoying. I posted in the Technical help forum last week here Issues on mobile - no response I'm having issues on Chrome on my phone and Edge on my laptop - Firefox still (almost always) works.
I am using Safari on desktop, I never use mobile maybe sometimes to just view notifications. Yesterday I installed Antivirus Zap-Virus & Adware. It took a day to really work but I am no longer getting any pop ups and my computer is like 10x faster. So I am quite happy this morning.
It's baaaa-aaaack. More of this going on for me this week, on a pixel 5. The weirdest part is that I can go "back" to the forum when it happens. If I can use the back button it takes me to whatever I was on before coming here, and sometimes I have to close out the tab.
It's like it's actually replacing the entire forum somehow. Mostly happens on the default mobile page listing the recent threads.
