    BF's new video ads and popups are horrible

    Has anyone else had trouble on the site with the new advertisements and pop ups on BF? The site is REALLY slow now and the video ads sometimes overlay the text on the screen and I cannot get rid of the popups to read what is behind them. I find my patience is wearing thin and I an spending less time in the site now.

    1. What OS and browser combo are you experiencing this with?
    2. What ad(s) and which forum(s) are you seeing these? Screenshot(s) would be most helpful

    You might also want to check your end for any adware that you might have inadvertently picked up from somewhere. I was experiencing similar issues when I first got my laptop last year (W8) and was using IE. My Star and the Yellow Jersey under/before it should have meant zero ads but I was seeing them. Turns out that a "coupon helper" extension had piggy-backed its way onto my new machine via an add-on I had installed.

    Bike Forums does not have any popup ads. Can you take a screen shot and post it here when it happens?

    Here's one for ya. This ad overlays every photo in the gallery and it cannot be removed or moved, making the gallery useless to me.
    And I don't know how I could have picked up an ad for cold weather clothing. I live in the sub-tropics. Our weather is like Death Valley with 90% humidity. I don't even own a jacket.
