    Yeah, all seems well after login, but it's been happening since beginning of January.

    Normally, it opens a new tab with the AZ icon, then Ublock closes the tab. Today, though, it displayed this:

    ...i clicked the 'permanently' button which then took me to a different URL, which immediately wanted to install an .exe - unfortunately i didn't screengrab it, 'cos i reflexively closed it pronto...

    just authoirize at AZ and you will not see popups never again.
    this working without anyt adblocker.
    that's all.

    Yes, but it still occurs AT LEAST ONCE 'cos the pop-up happens immediately you click to login... :snuffy:
     
  5. I wrote to you about this, you say it no problem. It finally stopped 2 days back!! Driving nutso, all the re-directs and closing browser to gets out. Adguard trying to help with it, but slow support. Thanks you for change advertisement, much better now.

    of course, because at that moment (before authoirisation) you are still a guest.
    are you need authorisation every 3 minute? I don't think so.
    1 authorisation for 3-4 month and 1 f***n popup that can be closed in 2 seconds - yaeh, this is "real" problem :facepalm:

    Alas, firefox on my PC is confiigured to remove all history/cookies upon app closure, so for me i have to login at least once a day
    - it's a tragic, life threatening crisis indeed... :no:

    It happens when we aren't logged in. And it's been happening since I first found out AZ

    Use Cookie AutoDelete addon and make an exception for AudioZ.

    This seems to have reared it's head again... one click in every two on the sister site now takes me to a pop-up particularly if I'm clicking on a link back to this site.

    Another shoutout for uBlock Origin. I've never seen a pop-up or an ad on the sister site, ever.

    I also use Cookie AutoDelete. Perhaps that helps as well? (Both on Firefox.)

    uBlock Origin here too and this nonsense started up again a week or two ago. I installed the "URL blocker" Chrome addon and blocked *.xyz and *.club to avoid the malicious downloads and auto-close tabs that try to redirect me based on those domains.

    Increase the latency... oh, wait. Wrong topic. Wrong thread. Wrong everything :rofl:
    Now seriously
    That's weird, because I don't have them using also ublock origin.
    Perhaps a matter of configuration. I use several lists that its settings offers but not checked by default.

    Ah, settings, rings a bell. [​IMG]
    I've found an entry (icon) block all pop-ups on this page and this seems to work.
    But I've no clue of which lists you're talking.

    There's tons of settings (right-click -> options). I was talking concretely about the "Filter Lists" section (tab) of the options.
