Forest River doesn't own this site. It is owned by Social Knowledge, LLC

I don't have any issues with it in any of my OS or browsers. However I keep tracking to a minimum and use AdBlock.

FRF Site Problem

I use Android Phone, Tablet, Kindle, Windows and Chrome on computers for 3 years now and do not have your issues. I doubt it is the site. It could be a setting in the OS and how your browser is set up in regards to how it handles the connection to FRF. Problems like those you are experiencing can be very elusive. Hope you get a tech that can pin down the cause for you.

As noted earlier, Forest River Inc doesn't own or manage this site. We work pretty hard to keep the site running smoothly and I'm sorry you are having problems. Here are somethings you can do:

1. Run a full system scan to make sure you don't have unwanted adware. I like Malwarebytes but there are other good options available.

2. Make sure that you are logged in when viewing the site - you will see fewer ads.

3. Enable cookie exchange with the site - we use cookies to keep you logged in and help page navigation.

It's worth noting that we do run ads on this site - mostly via Googles adsense program and we specifically exclude popup ads. If you are seeing these, something is amiss. we do occasionally have some video ads that run in the top corner of the page but they aren't activated unless you mouse over them so you might avoid that if you find them bothersome.

Ads help keep the doors open and support server expenses, programming costs and licensing. We do our best to find balance in this regard but understand that some folks just hate ads. If there is sufficient interest we might consider setting up a supporting membership program that would allow subscribers to disable some or all ads as an option, but currently we don;t have anything like this in place.

One thing to check: open Chrome, Settings, On Startup. If you have "open a specific page or set of pages" I'd go back to the default, "open a new tab".

I cannot necessarily agree with this statement/assessment, as per my post #7 in this thread, I am offering to try and troubleshoot the problem. We have to have a starting point.

I will not be accessing this site during breaks or lunch any more from my work computer.

Whether it is our IT folks clamping down on outside tracking or the FRF site is more aggressive with its 3rd party tracking doesn't matter - the result is the same.

For my current job, I do a lot of supplier research and pricing on the web. I do not run into these issues on their sites. I run into occasional instances of 2-3 extra pages (consecutively in the same window) on some consumer sites, but no other site besides FRF causes 20+ extra pages.

For kicks and grins, I loaded this site from 3 different laptops, one running Chrome, one running Firefox and one running Windows 98 (I still use that for programming my CNC machines, and all loaded this site just fine.

Quick load, no issue. I only have Ad block on the Chrome laptop, the other 2 have no shareware programs.

That leads me to the conclusion that you have internal browser issues. Not this site.
