    happened twice now, I was reading the neo luddites burning 5G towers thread and as I did the page changed to this, https://www.asus.com/uk/campaign/ZenWiFi/

    I closed that thinking it was a pop up and realised I had closed HH altogether

    Im fairly confident t that my hand was not on the keyboard or mouse at the time

    Second time I seem to recall this happening last few days but cannot say fr sure if I was redirected to the same ad

    Yeah, sometimes this new ad link bleeds into the forum, and if you click on a link to lets say see a larger picture, or click on a link in the story, you click the ad on the left and right hand side of the forum. For me it has only happened after viewing a larger version of a picture though.

    I don't really mind it, it should hopefully go away when they change the ads up again, but I the reason I don't mind is because HH is one of the few sites where I allow ads and every time I click it by mistake I know I'm supporting HH in a small way so yeah. Otherwise, it's not a big bother, if I go to the ad, I just hit the back button on my mouse.

    never seen this..... i'd say that there is a better chance either of you are using a add-on or may have a compromised browser...

    Nope no add ins and literally only 1 week into a fresh total reinstall of the OS, if anything my Browsers cleaner than ever, Will admit though before the wipe I had never seen it.

    Might try browsing here with edge for a few days though see if its firefox related.

    I'll add what I said before, since it vanished in the server move.

    I use Opera.

    Tried Opera a few times and Chrome but I am a slave to the old drop menu bookmark approach that IE and Firefox use, its the one thing that stops me from switching
