    This stuff you can only really block by using an adblocker or a specially adapted host file that blocks unwanted pages by giving them a "fake" address like 0.0.0.0 or 127.0.0.1. Those are solutions that are not that easy, or even possible to us on a phone though AFAIK.

    This site is paid for by ads though, so the best option is probably what a few others already did, which is trying to identify the ad or page that annoys you and if at all possible, get their address and post that info here.

    Same thing on my computer. It also considerably slowed down performance to the point of freezing the screen (the constant Ad reloading). I fixed it, however, by switching to chrome from Safari on my macbook air. The reason why I switched to chrome is because it has better settings to protect against malicious sites and abusive flash plugins. Now I do not have any redirections or slowdowns. Maybe you could try that?

    I am currently facing a similar problem on Chrome though when I use IE they work perfectly. How can I correct this .
