    I am new here and I have spent a lot of time on Search trying to get rid of the annoying popup "answered-questions" which follows me everywhere. I figure it has been dealt with somewhere, but can't find a solution. Please help.

    I've noticed it too and it's just started today. I'm sure Admin will be onto this - it's very very persistent and very very annoying and will quickly send people away. If you have the iCab browser, you can set a filter

    Thanks...It has been driving me to distraction
    I guess Search did not turn up anything because it is so new?

    It certainly wasn't there last night (I'm in the UK) so it's come up overnight. I've sent a message to Admin to ask them to fix it quickly before it drives everyone crazy.

    A few of us have it. I had it all last night! I think Rambler gave it to me, he was whining about it then I got it.

    Then I was whining too.:D

    Members have been commenting about it in several posts; I hope Admin fix it soon. Perhaps iPF has been hacked??

    I haven't given you anything Marie LOL but I would be most pleased if we can sort it!
    I use the standard browser with I pad, so not sure about icab or how to set a block up for a certain site, I've checked settings and found nothing!

    Marilyn and Marie confused....:D

    You can't block this pop-up in Safari but if you have iCab you can set a filter to block it very effectively. You'll see the URL I gave above - just type that in as a user-defined filter in iCab and you'll not see that pop-up again.

    Plus - an added bonus - iCab can pretend it's not an iPad so you don't have to suffer that dreadful new Google search results interface they've just rolled out.

    New Google Search experience for tablets - Official Google Mobile Blog

    Sorry Marilyn...I meant Marie.....I knew it began with M LOL

    I've just been looking on the net for a different browser Tim, is icab what you would suggest for the best iPad experience, are there many other platforms?

    The only browsers I've tried are Safari (of course), iSwifter, Opera and iCab.

    I chose iCab (it's only £1.49) because several Members had recommended it. It's certainly a lot better than iSwifter and Opera, in my opinion. It's infinitely configurable and the Developer seems to be committed to the app.

    There are a few minor 'niggles' with it...

    but it has a Safari-like GUI, so you're not confronted with something entirely alien. You can download and *upload* files, there's no stupid 20MB limit on 3G etc.

    Irritating popups?

    Sorry, probably wrong forum, but what the heck are these irritating popups that appear in very single post in our forums over the last couple of days? Are they really necessary?

    There have been several threads started about this and it's been reported to Admin who are looking at it as we speak. It shouldn't be there - so it's not a new policy - a hack, a bug - who knows?

    If you have a browser with a filter, you can stop the pop-ups by blocking...

    http://mm.chi*

    where the '*' is the facility of most filters to mean 'any number of any characters'. At present, there's no way of blocking on Safari. Hopefully, though, it will be fixed really soon.

    I loaded iCab to access this forum, applied the filter and still have the popup problem.
    I think I will leave it for a while. Not that keen on iCab anyway.
