Ugh. Were you able to capture any video/a screenshot or any other info to help tack it down? ^_^;>

I have been looking for it but have not seen it however my work does block a lot of things anyways, at home if I happen to get on I use my iphone so I don't get ads the pop up most of the time I will still keep an eye out for u if I get on my desk top I will look out for it as well but since my husband is a computer tech by trade it may be blocked on my end as well at home.

If anyone gets an autoplay video ad that keeps grabbing focus away from the cursor, say something here. PPE and I have been trying to track it down, but it doesn't load for either of us so he can't find out who it is.

There's a red triangular logo in the upper right of the ad, but we've had no luck figuring out what company it is.

I have tracked down the majority of the ads causing the problem. It was actually a combination of advertisers, and even YouTube channels. My guess is that somebody out there is using a really broken video template all over the place and they have no idea that it isn't working.

Anywho - the offending advertisers and a fair number of individual ads have been blocked. For the most part, the effects should be immediate, but for some, it may take a little while before they are all blocked completely.

Hopefully this is the last of this, for a while

Default Problematic Ads...

Since the Problematics ads report'em,catch'em,kill'em thread has been closed,
I'll leave this one here.

It seems to be coming up on every page now.

I merged your post with the original thread and reopened it.

Unfortunately, PPE hasn't been in in awhile. Hopefully he sees this.
