    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ve sent the screenshot off to the ad company, so hopefully gets resolved ASAP. Seems every site on the ad network is having the same problem.

    Can only apologise, they’re still looking into the issue. I think it’s a new type of intrusive ad that they’ve not come cross before.

    Do you have the site added to your AdBlock whitelist on Chrome? I’m assuming the site was working fine on Chrome up until today?

    That’s very strange, could you try Incognito mode to see if it still happens? Not sure if clearing cookies and cache will work but maybe worth giving it a shot?
