XFINITY add interferance

I keep having the XFINITY add overlapping the first statement at the top of the page, and only the XFINITY add. This makes it very difficult to read the first statement in any forum subject. I've contacted the website admin for help, did what they suggested with cookies etc., reported back that it didn't work, but it's still happening. It doesn't matter weather I'm logged in or not. There's no way I can find to delete or move the add. Sometimes I can go to another subject and come back and it will be in it's proper location, but not always. Many times it also pulls the line below it with it (AdChoices, Escape for Sale, RV Travel Trailer, Trailer Sales, Owners Club). I'm using Chrome as a search engine. Any other complaints like this?

I've had my Firefox browser go out a couple of times in the last several days. In order to get it back and functioning properly, I had to use Internet Explorer or Chrome. With both those browsers, I was inundated with annoying ads on this forum that I never ever see with Firefox.

I just installed AdBlock Plus on my Safari browser, for the exact same reason. It appears to do what we need - removed the "floating" ads that refused to behave reasonably. It also appears to have removed the "tracking" ads that keep remind me that they know where I have been browsing.

Worth trying in my opinion.

Thank you all. I'm going to give some of these suggestions a try. Opening the forum up just now, I can't even see what I wrote due to the XFINITY add. And you're right, these adds are not playing nice. Upon opening the forum, I just sit back and wait until the adds are all done loading, re-loading, and finding their place. One day I was forced to listen to an adds music over and over again. Couldn't turn it off, so I just left.
Thanks,
Tom

Just added AdBlocker Plus, what a difference. I no longer have to wait for the adds to load, re-load, and find their designated placement. Thank you all

And yet another fan of AdBlocker Plus. I downloaded it yesterday and it sure makes a difference. Will be installing this on our other computer also.

Cheers
Doug

Can you post a screen shot or get the url of the ad next time you see it? We may be able to block this but I need more info and have not seen the ad.

Sorry, or not sorry, Janet, I haven't had the problem since downloading AdBlocker Plus. AND, the site loads up much faster without all the re-loads and adjustments caused by the adds. I'm again a happy camper!
