    You aren't supposed to see any ads with or without an ad blocker.

    FWIW, just as Charlie says, I don't see any ads on these pages using Google Chrome with Adblock extension, whether it's enabled/disabled or refreshed or not, and I'm just a regular member.

    PS: Odd, but I'm sure they used to show, sometime ago.

    What macOS and browser versions?

    I do not get any ads with macOS 10.14 and Safari 12. I do have Ghostery and AdBlock extensions installed.

    You must have some adblocking software installed with Chrome somehow.

    I normally don't use Chrome, but when I look at the forum now with Chrome, I get more area of my monitor screen taken up with ads than with the forum posts.
    Chrome in that sense is worse than Firefox.
    Screen shot of what I see with Chrome is below

    Yes, I have Chrome Adblock plugin installed, but even with it disabled, I see no ads:

    Now for some odd reason I can't add the screenshots I just took. Very strange!!
    Nothing happens when I click the 'Insert Image' icon.

    I sure don't see any of the ads that krs shows.

    This is what I see with Firefox.

    Good thing I have a relatively large, 24-inch 10 x 16 screen or I would have to scroll to even read one post (can't add a grin icon even though they show on the right)

    krs I can't quote your post for some reason, but you said:
    Sorry Jake, but that doesn't make any sense to me.
    Why would you think one can't see the first post on page 2 without refreshing the browser?
    I never refresh my browser (unless it does it itself when I download an upissue) and I have never had a problem with a post not showing up.
    hoody, in post #26, says he didn't realize there was a page 2, which is what I was trying to suggest. Sometimes the website doesn't show page 2 until you refresh the page, or leave and come back. So I hope that makes sense now.

    As for the ads, I can't explain them, but I do see them. Neither covers up my text, as far as I can see, but they are distracting. The website is having "adventures" recently, including at this very minute about half of the emojis showing as blanks and no menu for uploading images or editing posts, either. So there are definitely strange things going on.

    It seems I can use the quote thing, but no way will my "Insert Image" icon do anything, and the "Restore auto-saved content" message box won't disappear from this thread and I wonder if they are among the "strange things going on".

    Yes, I see what you mean.
    Happened to me too - not that I had to leave the page or refresh the browser (which is what I was questioning), but that I didn't realize there was another page to a thread.
    The page was always there, I just didn't think to look and click on the next page number and wrongly assumed I was at the end of the thread.

    I have the emoji problem as well, but I can obviously upload images by going to "Manage Attachments".

    I deleted all mackeeper files that I could find and restarted the computer. It didn't make any difference. Thanks for your suggestion, but we're off to the Apple shop tomorrow to get this and the slow iMac sorted out. It's only money.

    I didn't realise the quote function wasn't working. The above post was in reply to Rod Sprague, post 29

    Hey guys....

    The quote feature is not working. Our tech is still working to sort things out.

    Thanks.

    Safari is now reporting the site is unresponsive and then that there are too many redirects. Opera is seeing it just fine, so I don't know if it Safari, the site or what.

    I get too many redirects on Chrome as well; Firefox just gives me a blank page.
    That's when I log into the home page.

    But the emojis are all back for me - that's great!

    Finally got the site to load by visiting email response link. Previously blank like krs example although Chrome would open the site. Replaced my unresponsive Firefox bookmark with new bookmark of home page and noticed the icon has changed. Interesting!
    I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.

    We're still getting the "redirect" error and the site is not remembering profiles. I have had to sign in with my password each time. We need to be patient.
