Pop-ups are going to drive me away or kill my computer.  I guess I have to find another site to browse.  This one has too many bugs.

I don’t get any pop ups on here, but I was getting annoying video ads until I installed adblock on Chrome…it’s honestly a million times better now! Highly recommend to all bees!

I’m also having tons of issues with this site lately. On my desktop it’s slow and crashes, on mobile I get porn pop-ups. SUPER annoying. I can’t even go to this site on my phone anymore because if I do it freaks out that I have some virus (and it doesn’t do that with other sites).

LilliV :  Use Google Chrome as your browser and install ‘adblock’ for free. AMAZING. No advice for your phone though, and I didn’t have the porn popups on here ever, that sucks! Just laggy video ads and banner ads galore that made everything freeze.

Thanks, bees, for the adblock suggestion! I love this! I like watching the count of ads blocked go up in the top right 🙂

My exh is a IT Tecnician. He’s cleaned my MacBook for me and I’ve showed him the ridiculous ads and Home Depot pop-up! It’s the site NOT my MacBook!!! 

 

I’m only shopping at Lowes now on principal.

I don’t have any issues with my home computer, but on my phone it will switch to some site telling me I am a winner and to spin a wheel. I cannot even hit back to make this site come back; I need to type it back into the address bar. And it happens ALL. THE. TIME. I cannot visit this site on a mobile device anymore. It’s too bad they cannot/ do not want to fix this.

I can’t get on the site on mobile because it redirects to browser hijackers that usually tell me I have “3/5/11 Virus!!” (yes, usually with double exclamations for added emphasis), and I have to close the browser and try again. So far hasn’t happened on other sites, and I have virus and malware scanning apps on my phone that come out clean.

On my computer I have AdBlock + and zero problems.
