Anyone else use google chrome?

Post  Matthew G on Wed Mar 05, 2014 5:05 pm

So I primarily use Google chrome for my browser, but lately (last week or so) the banner ads like to overlay lower than they should, blocking parts that shouldn't be...
Anyone else get this, or know how to stop it?

I also use the Google Chrome and no, I'm not having that issue. Maybe check to see that yo're up to date?

Settings>About Google Chrome

If you see an error about communicating with the server just update it manually here.

So. I still get this one banner ad for HP printers or something, and its that one ad that displaces on the screen ever time lower than it should by a good bit. It cuts off the "post titles" if I were to make a new post, or just plain gets in the way.
None of the other banners do this, and it happens to me at home, on my phone, at work, among Google chrome to Internet explorer.

How can I complain about this? lol
Its SO annoying

i know its not helpful, but i only use Firefox. i know chrome is the new hotness and all, but i basically can't use teh interwebs if i'm inundated with ads all the time, and Firefox is the only browser i know of with Adblock plus to get rid of all the spammage.

You can grab AdBlock for Chrome as well. It should prevent the banner from loading in the first place.

I never see any banners.

They only ever appear if Im not logged in.. but I have it flagged to log me in automatically so i neber see them.

If multiple people had the problem i could look into it further but it seems its only limited to you. Why it happens all tje time.. no idea.

You see banners when your logged in?

Yeah I do, just a single banner between my [home, gallery, FAQ, search...etc] area and the spot where it tells me the current date/time it is.

And, its only that ONE HP printers banner that fucks up. All the other banners behave and stay where its suppose to, and aren't a bother.
Is there a setting to disable banners? or do I need a certain number of forum posts or something to disable them?

Im going to look into this Adblock
