Amazon pop up - something new here?

In the last few days a new issue has popped up when reading these forums.

A new Amazon pop up game called ‘Spin The Wheel’ or something like that.

It has been doing this both on my iPad and Android phone, but am away from home without the laptop, so I don’t know if it is doing that on a computer.

This only happens after I click on an email link from a post here at this chat board only.

This does not happen from any other link in my emails, which leads me to believe that it has to be from here somehow.

There is now way to close this spin wheel thing other that to close out the whole page, then click on the email link again and the FR page comes up without the spin wheel game.

Just thought I’d bring this up to the powers that be.

Mine does that also, random like. Open a second page of a thread and it pops up. Only on this site.

The only way I can figure to get past it is to close page and reopen.

I have been going through the same thing. It’s only on this site.

At least I now know that it isn’t just me as usually when this kinda thing happens we get told to ‘run our antivirus software’.

Me Too

This only happens to me when I open this site with Safari on my iPhone. It doesn’t happen with my iPad or my PC. It completely hijacks the page, requiring me to shut down Safari and try again, but it is persistent and happens the next time I open up this site.

I quit using Safari on my iPhone for this site and started using the Forest River Forums App and I have no problems, except I much prefer the browser version than the App version.

Same way with me and on other sites as well! Amazon only! It’s enough for us to stop using Amazon!
