View Full Version : Weird Amazon.com popups

11-Nov-2012, 12:21
When I logon to the forum I get bombarded with pop us from amazon.com. I used Firefox and I had to shut down after 58 popup windows because my computer locked up. I tried to log on again thinking it was a fluke, but it happened again.

HEre is a screenshot. It doesn't happen with any other website.

I'm not sure it will help, but I also use Firefox and had similar strange popups on IMDB, Photo.net was losing some images on the galleries leaving blank spaces as well as having popups, and my Yahoo home page spontaneously switched to a totally new style that I hated over the classic. When I did a google search to figure out how to change back on Yahoo, it advised clearing all cookies, history and caches. I ran CC cleaner (filehippo.com) plus removed recent history and now everything is back to normal including all pop up issues. Good luck.

I use NoScript (http://noscript.net/) when I'm browsing with Firefox. I don't know why anything would pop up on the forum, but NoScript would catch the culprit. Check your extensions and add-on list, and see if there is anything odd on it.
