I just sent an email. its that ads by WGX, I got one while bonding familiars, didnt click it, but it redirected me to a spoof microsoft site saying your windows operation key was 'frozen' because it detected something, prompting you to put in your windows registration key to "unfreeze" telling you to not close the window, or restart your computer until you do so.

Just got the McAfee ad by WGX popup in the top right corner that others have been reporting, but I forgot what code you guys needed, so I went to check this thread and on returning it was gone. I'm on Chrome. If I get it again I'll document it.

EDIT: forgot to mention I was on Windows 10. I typically play on my phone, which has an adblocker (sorry, but I’ve gotten a slew of ads that make the game unplayable with immediate redirects on the same page and having to close the entire tab and hope nothing downloaded...) anyway, just wanted to say I might not get a screen of the code cause of that. But my ads are the same as a lot of others are reporting so I imagine it’s fine. sorry to be unhelpful, thank you to those who are able to report the code

[center]Windows 10, firefox; for me, these ads seem to appear floating over any FR page that isn't preceded with www1 in the nav bar, most commonly when viewing my own profile or a dragon in my lair. This was an adventure.

I can inspect source, or inspect element.

[quote name="raiderp" date="2019-10-03 08:29:21" ] I am also on Windows 10, but I use Firefox as my browser. This past week, I've been getting ad boxes popping up in the right corner while paging through the dragons in my lair and notice that Firefox is blocking more pop-ups. It doesn't happen on every page and not every day. [img]https://i.imgur.com/i0RR7nK.jpg[/img] Next time I see it I'll try to inspect the code and can add it here. [/quote] Yeah I been seeing this a lot to, I see it about like every other day it seems? I would of taken a screenshot but it only happens on my school laptop[size=1] (my other pc has a pop up ad block thing)[/size] EDIT: I was bonding with my familars, and when I went to click the heart it sent me to some random website, I clicked off to quickly to know what website it was but this might help

" When you do good things, good things will happen to you, do bad things and they'll come back to haunt you."

My favorite dragons are in my "Keeping Forever" tab, I also have a wish list in my description.
+3 Hours FR time. Ping me if you want me to notice you!
Got an inappropriate pop-up in the top-right corner while I was editing a dragon's description.

I hoard Slight Eyewings and am always happy to take extras off your hands for AH prices!
Windows 10, Chrome browser. My inappropriate ads experience is like many others' already described: on the Gathering page, I had an upper right-hand corner pop-up about the weather of all things, then it redirected me to a site about Roblox, which I clicked out of immediately before I read this post. If/when it happens again, I'll capture the info.

I am on Safari on mac, and those corner pop up ads are back from before, the same ones we were dealing with like a week ago.
