Ahhhhh! I have a pretty good pop up blocker on my phone but the website must have added something new bc I'm getting a floating bar on my screen that advertises for FB, Pinterest, and something else. I can't stand ads like that! I don't mind the ones that stay in one place, but floating ads clutter up my screen.

This isn't a problem for my laptop as I have all JavaScript disabled. Ugh. I wish there was a way to avoid the ads. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have no suggestions. I usually use my computer and it's not a problem on there. I do hate the floating ads though they stink.

I noticed the floating bar this morning. It is super annoying! I wish it was possible to click an X and make it go away. :-(

I've been searching for mobile browser add ons. I may have found a potential blocker. If it works then I will share the details. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one suddenly seeing floaters

I noticed it today and its annoying. I post from my phone and the bar keeps hovering over the message box and it covers part of where I'm typing. It's really bugging me.

Even on my laptop if JM is not full screen the stupid thing covers what your typing?reading and since I do JM while im working on things its never full screen. I really hope they fix this one I wasnt happy whrn they added the stopid hover adds but this is rediculous idk why they continue to degrade the quility of their site like this.

On my laptop I have Firefox with the ad on for "No script" which turns off a lot. I wouldn't use it unless you are familiar with technology. It's the mobile version where the box keeps covering whatever I type when I zoom in that is KILLING ME.

Hurmph! I can't see what I am typing and I am having difficulty answering polls. If anyone wants to chime in I posted in the "Trouble navigating JM" board. Hoping mods can address this with the web designers.

I noticed this annoying bar this morning as well. I usually check JM and other forums from my ipad. Because of that stupid bar, seeing what I'm typing is difficult. I was just going to suggest posting in the tech board, but I'm glad to see someone beat me to it. I will definitely be chiming in there.

Ditto....I noticed it today too and it is annoying....especially since I don't use fb, twitter, and Pinterest....having a stupid icon floating there has absolutely no use for me.

I noticed it last night. It makes it nearly impossible to type from my phone. I won't be on much if it doesn't go away :/
