Subject: What is the youtube pop up on forum?

for the last few days each time I open the forum a pop up (prporting to be from youtube) appears, seems to be a couple of baskets of vegetables, tho previously it looked like someone up a tree - both brightly coloured - and annoyingly it keeps jumping down to cover the bits of thread I am trying to read!
I am the only person this is happening to? I have not tried to watch the (unasked for) video - how can it be made to go away, no little 'x' box! Help!

I've seen that ad, but it didn't jump about, just stayed (unwatched!) at the top of the screen where ads normally appear. It's not here today, for me,

Any way, I'm sure the techo 'Catters will appear soon & offer more help than I can.

good luck

It's a pain - it makes the rest of the site take longer to download on my little old dial-up system.

GfS - do you normally see ads on the top of the page? or can you block them?

Normally I see a box next to the Lyrics & Knowledge search box which has several text ads (bit of a blurb about the product & blue clicky for those who want to know about it) but it is sometimes replaced by a box with one of those youtube screens with arrow that starts the video

I have blocked pop-ups on everything else on my pc (well I think I have - really HATE them!) but this thing only started appearing on Mudcat recently, never anywhere else. I had a look at it )haven't opened /played it!) and it says something about: Think you know agriculture? think again
It follows me about the page, blocks my view of what I am reading / writing - it is to the right of the message box at the moment and I WISH IT WOULD GO AWAY!!!!! - I am not great at technology, so need simple advice please!

Gallus Moll: I've seen the ad you describe on the forum page, but for me, it was well-behaved. It stayed at the top of the page where it belonged, and when I scrolled down, it disappeared off the top of the screen like any other ad would. It never blocked my view of anything.

I wonder if there is something quirky about your browser that makes/allows this to happen?

I sometimes use a Mac with Firefox, and sometimes a PC with Google Chrome.

Jim - I also have a Mac & use Firefox, & the ad behaves the same way for me.

The ad stays above the line & doesn't follow me about.

I have installed Adblock, free with Firefox, and I still get it, BUT, it doesn't follow me around.
Maybe I'm too old and ugly to be worth following!

Open blockable items in adblock and block it.
It went past "slightly annoying" and into "giant pain the the ass" for me, and I zapped it.

I use Firefox on Ubuntu Linux and it has been there at the top of the page for the past few days, but is not there just now. As others said, it just stayed at the top so I didn't bother with it.

Ads on the whole don't bother me except that they slow down page load times significantly so I have installed Adblock plus, but just accepted the defaults. It had the desired effect of reducing page load times because the pages are not waiting for google ads or doubleclick or whatever to respond for several minutes before getting on with loading the main content of the page.

guess I'll need to bite the bullet and investigate these 'adblock' things - or get someone more pc literate than I am to do it for me! Thanks all for advice.

============

I've had amazingly/pissing-offly slooooooow load times in the last few months - sometimes I need to force quit & unfortunately my techo friend (aka. Personal Help Desk) is too busy to spend time here.

Ringing my ISP's held desk is always a problem as my phone is in the next room & I don't speak Advanced Computer as help desk folks do. Getting my modem sorted out earlier this year took over an hour on the first call & 2 shorter calls the next day! And one immediate (quick) visit from my techo mate that same day bringing a long cable to do what the ISP suggested.

I'm reluctant to install or load stuff myself - like gallus moll, I'm a tad computer illiterate!

Sometime back I inadvertantly accepted an upgrade/fix that stuffed my photo program (I didn't look at the details, stupid me!) as it needs to run on an earlier release of something (she sez. vaguely) & that took too long to get fixed (see comment about busy Personal Help Desk)

I started another thread on this - I seem to have tamed it, but I had to kill the ability to load youtube entirely.
