I just got one that is in the same style as a lot of other people have been getting, this one was about weather or something. I didn't know to inspect it, but I got a screen shot I can upload if needed (though it's pretty much the same stuff that everyone else is seeing).

This one occurred at Tomo's. I ignored it and resumed the trivia, but was redirected from clicking nowhere near the ad.

I appreciate that you guys are so proactive about this! <3

I have also gotten a weather popup add, and right-clicking to inspect it just opened up the new page. Clicking on the homepage logo made it attempt to open again.

[quote name="Valla" date="2019-10-03 07:53:59" ] I've had a couple of bad ads just now that have both avoided me being able to inspect the source. I am using Chrome and running Windows 10. The first was this "Ads by WGX" one that appeared in the upper-right corner of the window: [img]https://i.imgur.com/bZW2nJ4.png[/img] But alas, as soon as I tried to right-click on it, I was redirected to a different site, and the ad disappeared after that. I had another where the ad space at the bottom was blank and I saw a "pop-up blocked" message from Chrome. I went into the page source and found the ad section but before I could take a screenshot suddenly it switched to a completely different ad that didn't appear to be problematic. I will update this post if I manage to get the source code of either of these. [b]ETA:[/b] I got the "pop-up blocked" ad again and quickly went into the source code and got this: [url=https://i.imgur.com/pdm8a4U.png][img]https://i.imgur.com/pdm8a4U.png[/img][/url] However, I noticed there didn't seem to be any terribly useful information visible so I expanded the subsections as much as I could and managed to get this before the ad switched to something else: [url=https://i.imgur.com/Q4bR7QT.png][img]https://i.imgur.com/Q4bR7QT.png[/img][/url] Hopeful there's something you can use in there! [/quote] I had a similar corner popup, except it was reporting severe weather in my area. an entire new tab then spontaneously opened up, without me clicking anything at all. the window i redirected to itself just says "local listing- landing page hosting" with no other info at all, not even when i inspect the page :( i'm on windows 10 chrome

However, I noticed there didn't seem to be any terribly useful information visible so I expanded the subsections as much as I could and managed to get this before the ad switched to something else:

I'm also getting the "severe weather" popup ad in the right upper corner.

I got the weather ad too, tried to inspect, and it disappeared - still, this is what I could find afterwards. I don't know if it will help at all, since it disappeared before I could use inspect. [img]https://i.imgur.com/2GEryLi.png[/img] For reference, there were two other ads, both seemed fine, and the weather ad in the top right (just under my user bar). I tried to right click on it, and it opened up this in a new tab: https ( colon ) //cdn (dot) rtclx (dot) com/c/?s=50&ts=1570197488698&a=feea80d8e6ae11e99c690242ac110003&b=feea80d8e6ae11e99c690242ac110003-9876&r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww (dot) accurateweathertoday (dot) com%2Fxjslz%3Fcid%3Dfeea80d8e6ae11e99c690242ac110003-9876%26t2%3Dsite-6hd5pn%26t6%3DPUSH&suid=f0ea1e75c628ec4a9d3d05429be0ab3406710de92 Edit: I'm using Chrome on Windows and I found this in the "Other" section of my hoard, if that helps.

Another redirect- windows 10 chrome, had clicked on the select all box in my hoard to convert all my food items into food points, but as i clicked "convert" i was spontaneously redirected to this page: [img]https://i.imgur.com/04esPxJ.png[/img] there wasnt even a pop up- it was completely spontaneous

windows 10 chrome, now getting the redirect without the upper right corner similar to this post (http://www1.flightrising.com/forums/frd/2760032/6#post_40838256)when I click on coli

(I assume it's when there is the bad ad at bottom of window but since I got redirected idk if the bottom ad that I could see when I got rid of the redirect is the one that caused the crime)

my sidebar was a hiveworks comic at the time of popup but I wasn't zoomed out enough to see bottom of the screen.

I've been getting random popups in the upper right corner. No screenshot, sorry. But I'm noticing that they all look the same and sever other people have pointed them out there too. No matter what I try to do it always opens a new tab and throws me there. If it pops up while I'm say converting food items and click convert it will open a new tab, ifI try and click the little 'x' on the popup is opens a new tab. It's several different ads but they're all the same format and it's really frustrating
