Just got one myself after posting that above! What a nightmare! I've switched it off, hopefully will take effect soon. If it doesn't I'll see what else I can do. Definitely wouldn't have been my intention, those full screen ads are horrible!!

Using a PC and the ad-blocker plug-in for Firefox and I don't get any ads.

Same here. Not a problem but my indicator at the top of my 'puter screen tells me it has blocked two attempts in the last five minutes.

Not so much when you are as poor with computers as wot I is, or if you don’t have a teenager handy.

Its easy to add ad-blocker to Firefox, we can walk you through it if you would like to install it?

Its a browser like internet explorer, its what you are using to post on this forum.

I genuinely have no idea! It’s a tablet thing that my daughter bought me and set up for me. Sometimes I touch a button and don’t know what I’ve done and the kids have to put it right for me. I’m touching nothing except the (limited) bits I understand.

Well there you go then, get your daughter to install ad-blocker. :good:
