Same here...........

I just got the same panel whilst on CF, as a guest, researching an issue. I don`t get it on any other sites.
Mozilla. Laptop.

Regarding Post's 140, 141 and 142.
I see the same banner. It is new in the last several weeks.

Bruce: I beleave itís advertising. I occasionally see something similar but not on all my devices. Are you using add block and what OS are you using?

The amount of advertising on TF seems to have increased and become more intrusive over the past couple of weeks, including the panel at the bottom. Up until now I had avoided installing an ad blocker respecting the forum owners need for income. Yesterday I installed a blocker. No more ads. A much improved user experience.

Yes, I have Adblock, and use Mozilla Firefox,though Google and Microsoft seem to somehow involve themselves.
It`s as if the system wants to make you click on the "close" icon. Suspicious old me wonders why.
