Lately, at least in week, or so, every time I use the FBBO SITE, a multitude of annoying pop up ads have been invading the site. These ads are usually related to Google, but not specific but range from lsdies underwear, Sam's Club, to shoes, goli diet pills, etc. This has become extremely annoying. I've checked all the Google settings and turned off anything related to searches or syncing anything.....what has happened? Is this an effort to help finance the operation or just to defray costs? Or.....??? How do I TURN OFF THESE POP UPS???......Help!!!!!

Because this was posted where it was will get noticed and answered.
 
Had it happen on my phone (Galaxy S20FE5G) this morning as well... for the first time. Always logged in and was this morning. They blank out the entire screen so you can't see anything. Something in the coding is picking them up and dropping them there. I deleted browing history first, that did nothing to change anything. Deleted cookies next and then after I got locked out twice trying to remember my password to A and B bodies all was fine again.
 
Nope, its in your browser. Thats why others arent seeing the ads. Your gold, ads are blocked from going to you so long as your logged in.
I'll recheck all the settings on Google plus the device settings....plus reboot the devices....i'll advise of tge results...so far it's NOT on my Galaxy S22+ phone.....hopefully not yet.....

thats great - but you need to be checking the browser settings
 
In defense of the site...
I have zero difference in ad content on either my laptop or the phone. I see that several members are having troubles but somehow, I am not.

The phone and tablet use Android, the laptop uses Windows 10. I'll use your suggestions and advise. Thanks again for your help..

again - android is an operating system, NOT a browser.
