Wobbles-It's back again. I'm in the US and if I'm on BnB (doesn't matter if I'm logged in or not), that darn Disney/Walmart ad just hijacks the whole screen. Everything *looks* normal and the ad is normal sized but it's like there is this invisible barrier over the entire thing so if you click a forum or thread, it sends you to the Disney Baby products on Walmart's website. If I go into Mobile view, it doesn't show up. It's only in Desktop and it's not on every page I've loaded from BnB.

Thank you

Is there an 'x' or [close] option?

Can you screenshot for me? x

It's gone today. But when it's up, there isn't an option to close it down. Every other ad that covers the page or is larger sized has a little X in the corner or a 'close ad' link to click but this one Walmart/Disney ad never does. If it comes back, I'll try to get a screen shot so you can at least see what ad it is.

dairymomma - I screen captured and attached to the previous page!

wobbles - the ad does not "cover" the whole page in the sense that you can't see the actual website. However, if you hover over any part of the page except for the very very top and very very bottom of the page, it will redirect you to the walmart page. There is no X to get out of the ad. It's actually a really malicious ad that disables the bnb website completely unless you are on the mobile version. it's happened at least 3 times this month.

I can't even reply to this from the first page because it's on this thread now!

We're working on getting it fixed. It only affects Chrome. The only thing I can suggest for now is to use a different browser.

Buffaloed-it's not only affecting Chrome. I only use Firefox as my web browser and it shows up on there too.

ETA-I don't know if it's showing up for me today as I've kept BnB in mobile view for the last few days. Some of the other ads slow my computer down too much otherwise. (This is an issue with my computer, not the website though.)
