Anyone else experiencing forum issues

So i get on here using my phone, every now and then while on here an add, or pop up, or whatever it is will come up and re direct the page. It won't let me go back once it does it and i have to close the tab and re-open the site. This is the only page that this happens, just curious if anyone else has experienced this?

JD Q is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Every once in a while a advertising GIF will start during my viewing which makes the page jump to the bottom and tries to maintain that position. I think my firewall might be fighting with the website. It doesn't last long before it starts working correctly again. I don't know what is happening. It could be the North Koreans? Who knows.

I have the same problem but not only this site. I think an app I downloaded may be forcing the redirects. Trouble is, I don't know which one. Have to watch this crap like a hawk. I do not pitty anything that befalls the people who generate this slime. Slime begets slime, that is.

Edit: Lol, got redirected right after this post.

In my experience, it’s the mobile version that has the issue. I don’t care for the mobile version, it’s cluttered and hard to navigate plus it will auto scroll to near the top of long threads.

On iOS, hold the refresh arrow at the end of the address bar then pick request desktop site. Not sure how to get the desktop site in android but I think it’s just as easy.

I do not have this specific problem on this site. I use a PC not a phone to get on here.


I'm not very computer knowledgeable but this site loads more crap/garbage onto my computer than any other that I visit. I had to "refresh" 3 times just to read your post.

Not this problem but I have been having issues with the site. Just yesterday the entire site crashed and some server (The one the site is based from?) was showing up telling me its not my browsers issue. The sites been extremely slow and sluggish lately. No other sites ive visited have done it though.

Yes, on my iPhone 7 I have the same exact problem you speak of. It's like a fake Amazon popup or something and if you click it off, it clicks the whole site off. I'm at the point where I don't try to use the phone anymore. Like it was stated above, if there is a way to avoid the mobile side and use the pc version on my phone, I'll try that next.

I had the same issue on my iPhone, fake Amazon popups. It happened with this site and a few other forum type sites. I installed a free app from Apple store called NeverAds. It fixed the issue.

I'm fine for phone, but run Android and always tick the box that says 'use desktop site' in the options. That makes everything much better - no popups etc.

If your PC is slowing down with crap, do a search for "PC Decrapifier". Its a free download that identified programs that are slowing you down or causing other issues, then removes them. It also gives feedback on what sort of programs they are and what percent of users remove them. Highly recommended.

I use my phone 99% of the time and its android based, hadn't thought about using the non-mobile option, thank you.
