That new pop-up ad is annoying!

I understand the need, but I wish it didn't cover up the bottom of the page.



Yes, I know that I can send it away, but I get tired of doing that every time I want to read a page.

Thanks. I checked FF and it is not there for me, either, but it is there on Konqueror and also on Win10/Edge.

I am using Chromium on Debian. I installed an ad blocker which stopped it, along with the other, less intrusive ads. I did not want to do that because it deprives Mr. Pennock of a bit of revenue.

Also, being a capitalist at heart, I don't mind non-intrusive ads. They can be amusing and occasionally even informative.

Not mine. Guess something hijacked your browser.

But it is on three different browsers and two different machines with different OS's.

I am getting those ads at the bottom of the Pennock's window on my Mac with macOS Mojave and the Safari browser.

Don't know what to say but those ads are not coming from PFF.

Well, I take that back. Maybe those ads were coming from PFF. I just checked the settings in Google and somehow "Auto Ads" was enabled not too long ago. That's where Google just picks spots itself to display ads.

I have no idea how that got enabled but I've disabled it immediately so if the ads have now disappeared, we know that was indeed the cause. I don't want ads to appear anywhere else than the spots I've reserved for them.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
