A pop up telling me what is FBBO has started appearing when I come to FBBO. It appears every time I hit the back button. Is there a way to disable it?

Browser? Platform? Here's what I have bookmarked for the site (and keep in mind, I run an
ad blocker) on a desktop PC w/Edge browser:
(click image to embiggen...)
It just started one day and it quits after about a half dozen clicks of the back button, but it's getting old. I don't know what changed or how to change it back.
Try another browser or check if you have any extensions installed.
Cookies: no
Firefox instead of Safari: Yes

When I open a thread using Safari, I get two results. First is something new, as seen in screenshot of a for sale ad. Behind it is the result I used to get when I clicked a thread, as seen in the second screenshot. That's the one I prefer.

I changed to Safari as a Firefox update went goofy and I couldn't use it any more. One website would be normal, the next might be so tiny it couldn't be read, the next would be huge. It's still like that. I check back once in a while and update to see if they fixed it.

It looks like you're in reader mode.

In Safari's menu bar, click "View" and then "Show reader". That should take it back to normal.
Thank you. I have never heard of a Show Reader. No idea how I chose it or what it does, but thank you. I must have clicked something without realizing.
