    I always have to x it out. And if I don't hit it right, it opens the contest page, again.

    On my tablet it doesn't give give me the X until after I click on it and open the contest ad. Getting easier just to leave it there.

    Since this is an ad, might try out some ad blockers.

    Dont close your ECF page.. I haven't closed the tab (although I've open other tabs and used them) and haven't gotten the bubble since I closed it the first time (Thank God or I likely wouldn't be posting today)

    Not really an option IMO. I support ECF by allowing, and sometimes, taking advantage of, its highly targeted advertising. That... thing... is intrusive.

    I use Ublock Origin, and I still get it, and I have to click the X to close it every time I login to ECF. :(

    Right click the offender, select " block element": confirm offender is highlighted, click "create" , repeat for the frame.
    I think I do it almost automatically...:headbang:

    I get advertising. I disable my desktop ad blocker on this site and support vendors. On my desktop it's not a big deal, but I absolutely cannot accept the size of this thing on my phone and the fact that the only way to get rid of it is to open it. Unacceptable. Please disable this on the mobile version and if you can't, find something else that doesn't take up 1/3 of the page or require opening to get rid of it.

    I right clicked and didn't have a 'block element' origin. It's becoming annoying and has always been distractive.

    uMatrix is another cookie, script, css, image, media, XHR, frame controller add-on. Works well on Cyberfox, a FF alternative.

    N,
    I'm sorry to hear that.
    I use FF 57.0.2 and UBlock 1.14.22 on win7.

    "block element" is at the bottom of the context menu.
    Confirm that you have the context menu option enabled.

    If I can help at all, it is my pleasure.

    cheers

    Reereally hate how it zooms over tje picture I am trying to get a closer look at. I don't know how to get rid of it for good. I do know i will not likely buy any cutting edge mods from Sigelei or Snowwolf in the future.

    I am a supporting member and have adblocker and still get it. More than a bit miffed by it. At least the X works on all my devices.
