    Just got a Note 4 on Friday. Moved from an S4 to this. Overall I love it. One issue I am having is with this site. I seem to get a firefox popup whenever I open a new screen. It covers the whole screen and is annoying. I also get other popup for free iPhones, stuff like that. Is there some toggle I do not have set? I never had this issue on my S4. Any suggestions/help would be great. I did have Adblock Plus installed after this issue, but that seems to slow the phone down. Removed it.
    Thanks.

    Have you tried a different browser? Have you tried using Tapatalk?

    Only really use chrome. I will have to try others. Mostly use Chrome because of all the bookmarks I use.

    Open Chrome browser Settings -> Site Settings and make sure Pop-ups is set to "Blocked"

    I have mine set to off but I don't get pop-ups because my phone's rooted and adaway installed.

    It sounds to me like you installed a free app that came with pop-ups.

    There has to be a logical explanation, "we" just haven't found it. YET!

    Weird. It hasn't done it the past couple of times I've been here. Havent changed any settings..Maybe it saw our conversation and the popup got scared. No clue.

    I have been experiencing the same annoying pop-up, the exit "x" is so far up in the left corner it is impossible to close. Happens at sign in mostly and I have pop up block turned on.
