    I got an audio ad on the jazzfanz app last night, the initial ad that pops up before you see the site. It was really loud so I just closed out of it by reflex before I could even register what it was for. If/when it happens again I'll make a note of what the ad is for.

    Just got a really frustrating as that was red and black for some internet service from comcast. It would not let me scroll or type a post. Good lord that was annoying. It happened two times when I refreshed it.

    There is a Ford trucks ad that basically makes my browser unusable because it keeps on sending it back to view the ad.

    I believe the FORD ad is now blocked. Please send me the URL of any other ads mentioned if you can.

    Ok, the BONA floor cleaning ad and *I think* the Comcast ad in the red and black arrow 'loading-looking' ad, have maybe been blocked. Might take up to 24-hours to take effect. PLEASE let me know if you get more and screenshots of the page after clicking the "AdChoices" button and/or the URL on the "AdChoices" link on the ad will help me find them. Anything you can provide helps.

    My philosophy is that JFC has advertising but we don't want that advertising to auto-play audio or be overly intrusive. In exchange, my hope is you allow ads and not disable them.

    Thanks!

    [MENTION=1]Jason[/MENTION] - Just got an audio ad on the desktop site from USAA investments. I had several windows open and the ad finished before I could tell which window was making the sound. So I couldn't get the link. But hopefully that's enough to go off of.

    I just got an audio ad (desktop version) from the top of screen ad. Here is the link it sent me to:

    https://www.facebook.com/MilkyWay/

    Yes, it literally linked me to a MilyWay Facebook page.

    [MENTION=1]Jason[/MENTION] I've gotten several more audio ads the past couple of days. Not sure if they are all the same, but the last one was for CM Launcher 3D, which looked like it was probably an Android app.

    Just a reminder on the ads, I need the URL to effectively block it. Sorry but struggle to find them otherwise. Thanks for the reports.

    Ugh. Next time hover over the ad and see if you can get that URL instead? It must not recognize the Google Play one I gave it.

    How do you hover over the ad on the app?

    Most of the ad isn't clickable. The only part that is, as near as I can tell, takes you to the Google play page for the app it's advertising.
