Fodors is beating me over the head with this Delta popup ad

Every time I try to change forums, post a message, etc. I am getting this Delta pop up ad. Is it annoying anyone else?

You are probably still using internet explorer. Download and switch over to the Mozilla Firefox browser. Far less pop ups on all web sites.

Have you considered installing a pop-up blocker?

I have a pop up blocker which is normally quite effective and I don't use Internet Explorer.

Yea. What's up with that? I have a super pop up blocker and haven't seen a pop up here for ages. My blocker is so strong that I can't seem to use some sites even when I turn it off, because I still get a message that pop ups are being blocked.

But this new Delta one seems to over ride it all. It just started today -- or maybe yesterday?

I'm also getting some weird interference, which I assume is because of an epic battle between my pop-up blocker and the pop-up itself. It's ending up making my posts even more garbled than they usually are, or making me double post.

No Delta pop up here, but I'm getting SOOOO tired of that vertical Cadillac ad on the right-hand side of the page. The annoying thing has been there for months. I have no intention of buying a Cadillac. Has this ad enticed anyone else to consider buying one?

cmcfong, LOL!!!

I get the Cadillac ad but not the Delta Ad. I have a popupblocker on my computer also so really don't get any popup ads. BTW the Cadillac ad isn't a popup ad, it is just on the screen as the Amex ad is that is on the top of the screen while I type this post.

I'm with ET. I've been much happier since I switched from IE to Firefox. no delta ads, and very few popups allowed.

I use Firefox. No Delta. No Continental. No Cadillac. And I hardly ever get pop-ups. Our other computer has IE, with pop-up blocker, and that's a totally different story.

I am at the point when I have to question if I even should bother to post anything. The search function is not working. Seems I can't pull any thread up unless I scroll through 3-4 screens. Frustrating.

CMC, really, I am envious. Just set the pop-up on Fire(wall or fox )

I also have IE, but no Delta ad. I have the Cadillac one, but have not really noticed it until it was mentioned here.

I have the Google toolbar with pop-up blocker loaded and think that it has been the best defense against pop-ups so far.

Considering all the tragic news from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama this week, you'll forgive me if I can't have too much sympathy for these nuisance problems right now.

I use IE and a pop-up blocker, and I don't get any of the ads you mention.

We're donating to the Red Cross, we're praying for the people hit by the hurricane--but I don't see how not discussing pop-ups would make a difference.

I wish Fodors would beat some others over the head too LOL
We just got a Mac and I am so happy that we have had no pop up probs at all. No Delta, do Cadillac..

I'd consider switching to Firefox but so far people say things like "very few popups" and "less popups". I'm on my computer up to 12 hours a day and this Delta thing is the FIRST popup I've seen in months with my IE and a pop-up stopper. So it doesn't sound like I should switch.

I'm using IE and a pop-up blocker and haven't seen the Delta ad. I do have the Continental ad on the righthand side but it doesn't bother me as it isn't blocking any text.

You'll be so much happier on the web if you switch to Firefox. Its free, it hasn't been afflicted with all of the security breaches that IE has, it stops pop ups, and my favorite feature, it allows tabbed browsing, i.e., you can have several web pages running at the same time. Try it and I think you'll like it.
