Anybody else getting that infernal "yell" .com pop up for skips at the bottom of the screen? This is the only web pages that I get any pop ups. Just changed to wheelie bins !!!!!!!!!

Rdave13,

I don't know why I am getting them only been getting them this week. I have reset the IPAD and also reset all the pop up and privacy to no avail.

I went through all my usual forums here and didn't get any pop-ups on Safari.

I have gone through any open apps closed down everything opened up Safari signed into pca and get the pop up straight away even though after closing any open app, resetting the IPAD then closing down and restarting still get that yell pop up but only on the pca forum no others. Think I will try turning off JAVA Script and see if that sorts it out whilst on pca.

Turning off JAVA SCRIPT does not help, looks like I will give PCA a miss for a while as the advert is now changing adverts as we'll YELL is taking up about 22m/m band right across the screen. Have to have another look on the iPad forum again.

Talk about SPAM !!! "YELL" /com/plus is getting away with it

Looks like turning off Java script whilst on PCA has worked, I forgot to clear cookies ,history and data after switching off JAVA Script earlier.

I don't get these pop ups on my iPad.

Is your pop-up blocker on in settings, Safari?

Woolwell & rdave13

Sorry have not answered before now but have just got back, guess what, turned on JAVA Script and fingers crossed no pop up. Why I got this pop up and why it happened I don't understand as it only happened on PCA but appears to have ended .

Yes rdave13 my pop up blocker was on even turned it off and put it on again to reset. Many thanks.
