I use ad block plus from the app store. It works well and you can set it how aggressive to act.

If you install it delete your cookies and history first so it doesn't get confused on what not to block.

I have posted this several times here. I have not had a single popup ad since I followed the below instructions. You should also clear your cache and history when you enable the popup blocker. Just doing that, or using an ad or spam blocker did not work for me.

Corvette Forum admins posted the below work around. I enabled it early yesterday (Wednesday?) afternoon and have had no more popups on either of the sites. It notifies me at the bottom of the screen when one has been blocked. I have received multiple notifications on both sites.

Enter the following URL in the Chrome address bar:

Then enable the highlighted option.

I've got an ad-blocker, but don't use it on this site.

I am getting it too on my iPhone/Safari when I am logged into my account. It is very annoying, hijacking my phone telling my that I have won a prize.

I usually have to close out the window in my browser. I'll check out the instructions and see if it helps,

Adblocker works fine to eliminate the ads on my desktop PC's. The mobile site just sux though, in multiple ways.
