Instead of Explorer I have logged on with Chrome and Presto! GONE
You're welcome, you will also find the rest of the internet advertisement free, if any adverts show up just hover your cursor over them and right click your mouse and select adblock from the menu and you'll see the option block this ad
Dagnabit - the pesky things are here again!
BUT - they load instantly , there-by becoming a non problem!
I will try obliterating them....
Install this to your chrome
All gone away now
Excellent, my apologies for not posting that advice straight away, i seen the thread and thought someone else would say the same thing so i never opened it
Nope, they don't exist on mine. Which is nice.
Don't have them.
Running firefox, with the following extensions
Self Destructing Cookies
Yep, they're the ones. Browsing using Chrome(book) and they seem to load just as I'm about to click on a thread (all be it quite quickly) and it moves the whole shebang down a bit and lo and behold I open the wrong thread.
That's got rid of the beggars.
Edit:- No it hasnt
Snap. Absolutely no issues using Firefox. Using Duck Duck Go as its search engine keeps your browsing private. Chrome is pretty fast but it's intrusive.
Ghostery gets rid of these for me in Chrome - they seem to come from an "Addthis" widget. I've never seen them before, so I temporarily disabled Ghostery, reloaded the page and up they pop.
I agree about Chrome being intrusive, but Firefox has given me loads of grief on my current setup, and IE is a complete pain. I am still in search of the perfect browser!
install this too, they work in tandem
If they are still showing after that is installed hover over them with your cursor and click right mouse button, from the menu that appears point to adblock in the list and then select block this add, sometimes it just needs alerted to stuff
Firefox with Adblock and "Fanboy's Annoyance List" will sort you out.
I'm finding them a pain too. I'm not on Facebook, Twitter, PinIt, G+1 or +Share (whatever they are). They cause the page to load slowly. The browser seems to have to repaint the page for each one. And if I start scrolling down the page to read the posts before the page has loaded properly they seem to cause my browser to crash. I've done a cold reset of the box (iPad mini with Safari browser) and I still get crashes. No crashes on any other sites.
Any add-ons any of you can suggest for Safari to block these things? I guess they'd have to be available from the Apple store.
Even better would be a setting to opt out from them in my BCUK profile as I'm not on those groups. Nor ever likely to join.
Completely concur with you, they may be a useful tool for some but are a pain for the rest of us, lost count of the times i've re-entered an old thread after clicking on what was a new one 'cos the page has jumped.
These are still annoying me to the max and making browsing the forum a right royal pain, all too often getting the link above the one i want as page reloads its self after firing up these useless (to me) annoyances. Any more help about making them go away? Ad blocker not working for me in chrome(book).
There are addons for Firefox that block social media buttons and prevent them from sending back data to the likes of Facebook. I use ShareMeNot but there are others.
I don't think these are what's slowing yall's computer load times. I have them too but most of my pages are loading pretty quickly. The exception being the pages with lots of videos such as the Juke Box page.
They are a right pain on my tablet and I don't see why paid up members should not be able to stop it with out installing other programs, it is certainly something to think about when my subscription is due for renewal.
