Hugefiles Popup Ad Issue [With Fix]

Post#1 » Sun Nov 01, 2015 11:47 pm

having issues with Hugefiles tonight. Everytime I click on the text box to input the security text, something on the site incercepts my click and sends me to some advertisement site. I disabled adblock to make sure it wasn't punishing me for using that but the problem persisted. I then scanned my computer to make sure it wasn't a virus or a browser hijacker and nothing came back. I used to really like hugefiles but it feels like every change to the site it becomes more and more unusable. Perhaps its a temporary change, and they don't realize its causing problems. Who knows.

Hi. I am also having a problem with Hugefiles. When I click on "download" I am redirected to this:

http://www.park5-carmoto.info/getfiles/ ... SPARKS.mkv

The whole page is one big button and if I click it I am asked to save and run a file that is 1.0Mb and is from: http://www.have-to-go25.info

If I attempt to do that my malwarebytes stops it and quarantines it. So there is actually no way to download anything from Hugefiles, at least, not that I can figure out.

It seems to me there used to be a captcha for Hugefiles, but not now.

I saw in the answer above to add a listing to adblocker but I can't figure out how to do that. I have FF41.0.2 and have adblock plus, adblock edge and adblock plus pop-up addon.

If someone could let me know what's going on, or what I'm doing wrong, or how to add that address to my adblock I would really SO APPRECIATE it because the movie I want to download only has Hugefiles links. (Ex Machina)

Thank you!

HugeFiles is burdensome and twitchy in my experience.
