Gamefaqs has also had ads with viruses in them before, but I guess that's not quite as big of a threat on a phone, but it's still ridiculous. NoScript and Adblock for life

I have adblock installed on Firefox on my phone, and GFAQs still occasionally manages to sneak a nearly-full-screen video ad in. I almost never use GFAQs mobile any more because of that. GFAQs is one of the absolute worst offenders of terrible ads I've ever seen. During times I have not had ads blocked for whatever reason, I've seen (just on GFAQs):

Ads that open in a new browser window
Ads that pop up in a floating overlay that stays in the middle of your screen when you scroll
Autoplay video ads
Noisy Flash ads
Porn ads
Banner ads that expand to a full-screen rollout if you touch so much as a single pixel of the banner with your cursor

GFAQs posted a while back asking people to be nice and not block ads here. F*** that, and f*** them for asking. If there is ANY site I can absolutely NOT trust to handle ads properly, it's GFAQs.


And yet I still get a PM saying "Yo, we noticed that, like, you're blocking our ads. Could you stop doing that? Also throwback mode sucks and everyone who uses it are filthy ad blocking scum."

Thanks gamefaqs.

If it's bothering you enough disable JavaScript. It can make navigation a bit of a pain though.

I could never get noscript to work properly, it just messes with everything.

there's actually an free adblock web browser on the app store. It's kinda crappy and limited though, so I just use it for gfaqs.
