    if you mash it hard enough it'll eventually get back to where you were.

    Yikes, looks like mobile redirects galore in here.
    If it's annoying, you can install Firefox on Android and add the uBlock Origin add-on as a temporary workaround until this ad network sorts things out. (You may also be able to do this on iOS, but I'm not too sure...)

    Reviving this thread because I've just begun to get redirects for the first time on Chrome for Android. (Front page, forum list, threads, etc.)
    I found the offending ad, but there's no option to report it unlike the other non-offending ads that have "report ad" underneath them. I've included the links anyway.

    I’m getting a recurring ad for some Lion King crap. I’ll screenshot it in a sec as it’s normally popping up full screen every 10 seconds on iOS. Funny enough it hasn’t popped up once while typing in this thread

    Edit: here ya go

    That's definitely new, and I don't like it.
    IIRC, there were problems with similar ads on mobile and they were not intentional.

    I'm getting the exact same thing.

    The ad takes up 20% of the screen. Close it, and another appears seconds later.

    Ads organically integrated into content are fine. Pop-ups that persistently obscure content are annoying.

    Hopefully adjustments are made. :)
