Guide to Model Railroading pop-up-slide-in
Posted by mbinsewi on Tuesday, January 09, 2018 10:04 PM

Just wondering if this goes away.  I downloaded thinking that it would stop, when I logged in, not so much.  It continues on.

Am I the only one seeing this?

I use Fire Fox, and I have pop-ups blocked, along with the Eset security program I run.

Mike.

EDIT:  I'll have to try it tomorrow and log in with my lap top, Windows 10 and Edge, and see if it continues there.

It's been doing the same for me every day, even after I downloaded the guide.  Not a big deal though.  Just click close and continue.

When all else fails, wing it!

Im having the same issue, that and chrome "conveniently" downloads an "offline" version of the website from earlier in the day so when I go to it it "faster page loaded from earlier" that doesn't work when you refresh the site to see new activity...

I've had this happen a few times using Firefox with Adblock Plus but not over the past week or so.  I always stay logged in so that might have something to do with it.

In a internet world where some video, hidden on the side of the page, may start blasting away at full volume, a pop up in the middle of the screen is only mildly annoying.

I don't mind the pop up MRR content, but one of the ad placements on this site does not play friendly with mobile devices.

Automatic redirection to other sites and tab takeovers... 

After running through my firewall and watching traffic across my network it's being generated from browsing here.
