    I haven't seen the Amazon one or the Firefox one in months. 

    I did get them early on but changed some settings.

    What you are seeing is an ad gone wrong.  Use the private browsing function of Safari and you should not see these warnings -- but it will require you to log in every time you want to post.

    It does seem like an ad popup. Only happens on my phone.  Ill start using the private function

    Did a quick search.  It appears as if you can also try this instead of just using private browsing (which is a bit of a PITA if you intend on posting or really, really like that cookie warning lol ):

    I've not used this one on my iPhone, but I use this on my computers, and it will stop those ads.  Download it from the Application Store on your iPhone.

    Hope this helps...Mike

    Yep, I've got Adblock Plus and it works great - no popups, no ads.

    I don't have any issues either. May be the I phone. it is a common problem with Safari apparently. 

    Here is one solution

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8244848

    Just google the problem and try the solutions,. I did when I got the pop-up on my android at another site. I followed the instructions and have never seen it again,. It is likely in your memory somehow and just linking to this website.

    i am no computer expert, but google is your friend in this case.

    It does not happen on any other site I visit!  Hence, I blame FS, and this is not the first time. 
  • treemanjohntreemanjohn Posts: 2,775 Captain
    I just clicked on this thread and got another one. Winning!

    Clearly this is not FS fault!  It's your own!!!  How dare you blame the website that allows these ads!!!
  • ResinheadResinhead Posts: 8,914 Admiral
    Ferris says he doesn't get them so it's not a problem. Move along, nothing to see.

    Same here, only on iPhone using Chrome.

    Makes site unusable from phone.

    Check the link 'i gave and try that. If you google the problem you will see it is a big issue with I phones and a smaller issue with android. It may be using this website since it is not a secure site and doesn't use https. The site I had a problem with was not secure either. So it is likely on your phone and non secure sites are the ones that allow it. 

    Now I don't understand why FS doesn't use https. 

    But, as I said I ain't no computer expert, just an observation.
