    Why is it that, in recent days, I am getting a Samsung Galaxy pop-up ad every time I log into the DX forums page? I have pop-up blocker on, using Google Chrome browser on my PC, but this ad goes around it somehow. Are you all aware of this or is it something unique to my computer system? Anyone else having this happen?

    Hmmm. Must be something local. Thanks for your input. PS - I'm jealous you have Chrome2Phone. Still 2.1 here.

    It's a nice toy, but I don't use it much.

    I just signed out and back in on my desktop, and... I don't know why I'm typing this on here... Hang on.

    That's better. I noticed a Galaxy S ad on the right hand side of this forum page, if i wasn't logged in. It's one of those ads that expands when you hover your mouse over it. Maybe your mouse happens to be on that chunk of the screen?

    I posted about this in the Meta forum and got no responses. I typically use adblock plus on firefox but disable it on sites I support.
    This popup has become such a nuisance so adblock plus is my friend again.

    Thank you for the info and likely you are 100% right. Will watch next time I log in. When I use Chrome as my browser, it logs me in instantly. With Firefox, my other browser, I have to complete the log-in process. I'll bet that's when the ad shows up!

    It seems so arbitrary to show up that I was beginning to wonder what was goofy with my PC. Thanks also to Roberte1342 for uploading proof it exists!

    Yeah, I got it once as well. Minor annoyance, but the ads generate revenue for AC. Life goes on.

    Should be fixed, now, folks. Sorry about that. And I trust everyone clicked on it for us.
