pop up windows unavoidable

Post#1 » Tue Feb 04, 2014 12:23 pm

Android 4.2.2. Dolphin browser. The ONLY way I have found to avoid these nasty multiple loading ads is to disable JavaScript. This of course is not a good option as it makes the source buttons unclickable. The ads were once avoidable by reloading the mainpage, but they are now so persistent I simply con not connect.

I did the same but it is in the Base Programing of 4.2.2 as I have unfortunately found out. But in the control panel there is a button to opt out which took care of all pop ups.

The only way to avoid popups and redirects is to use adblock, now since its android you cant just install a plugin. you actually have to install the app which works as a proxy. You install the app then you have to setup your wifi connection with a proxy address manually. it can be a pain, but its a hell of a lot better than getting redirected every 5 seconds and pissed off. I use it on my Galaxy S3 and my Galaxy Note 10.1, works great.

Google plus is not a factor. Did not think adblock was an option with android. Thanks hibbs. Reference for future readers, set-up is not really a pain in the Ass: https://adblockplus.org/en/android-conf ... ricexample

With respect telling someone that the only way to use this site is to disable services that some of us use is just a lazy answer. I used to be able to get onto Icefilms from my Android tablet with no issues at all then suddenly every time I try to use it I get re-directed. Somehow millions of other sites manage to have ads and NOT completely hijack the mobile device, I'm just not sure why Icefilms can't.

I love Iceflims and use it almost daily so I appreciate all the hard work that goes into building and maintaining the site, but I'm not about to disable things on my device just because someone doesn't want to fix a problem on their site.

It isn't our site... It is Blatant Commercialism being Stuffed down our throats! If The Tracking is Activated you are going to get Ad's!!! Look it up. The Solution I Gave has Worked for weeks now. The Ad's That Come From Us can be Blocked with Adblocker. The ones From Google Cannot and they will Swarm!

I have an android phone. I downloaded the firefox browser and added the adblock extension and it helped a lot with ice on mobile. not perfect, but a lot better. there's another more aggressive ad-blocking extension they offered, too, that I could have added, and I might give that a try.

I've installed adblock - don't have Google + and cannot use the site on my Nexus 5.

Shame - as I use the site daily.

Please get it sorted.

We are on it. Your hard earned dollars you so graciously pour into this site have not gone unnoticed, and we are working feverishly to accommodate you. :|. @heygirlfriend; I also have firefox installed but rarely use it as it is way too sluggish for mobile. If firefox mobile is your thing, try using the blue hell add-on.

It's now May 15th, and there has been no update about this problem. Have been a avid user of Icefilms for several years (have donated a few dollars from my measly income) and have recommended this site many people. Hands down the best site on the net by far for this type of service, until this add pop up problem. Since this problem has occurred, this site is virtually impossible to use on any of my multiple android devices. Some of my units are rooted and have ad block installed which has remedied the problem most of the time, but not always. And since I bought a new tablet recently I do not want to root until my warranty is finished, I can't even use this site as the ads re-direct me each time and hitting back does not bring me back to the Icefilm page but to the starting point. The only way to avoid being re-directed is stopping the page from loading completely, which is a tricky thing to do. Ironically though, THIS forum site doesn't have this problem??? I understand wanting and needing to be compensated for maintaining such a large website and adds are required (I include pop ups in that). I can easily live with that, but the redirects are just down right annoying. I have been using other websites similar to this site for my viewing needs but none of them have the library as Icefilms and to be honest I feel like I am betraying the hard work you guys do when I view other websites. And yes those websites also have annoying pop ups, but they are manageable as they open up another tab/window and not re-direct you. Hoping you guys can figure something out and fix the problem.
