I keep having a pop-up ad come up over my CV page, and there's no way to close it. It looks like the ad has run off the right side of the page, so the "X" to close it is lost off the page. There's no scroll bar to let me get over there to close it. I have to reload the page, and hope it doesn't pop up again. If I'm editing a page, I lose whatever I was working on. This is obviously frustrating.

can you alt+tab it away?

@cbishop: can you take a screenshot so the engineers will know which ad is the problem?

This definitely isn't desired behavior. But yeah, a screenshot of this ad would be handy.

@rorie: @pikahyper: If it pops up again, I'll try to get the shot. It was a car dealership thing.

@cbishop: do you remember about what time it happened and in what timezone? that should help just as much to figure out what ad it was.

@pikahyper: I posted this topic just after it happened for the second or third time, so about 4pm EST.

Sorry, only saw this today. I'll try it if it happens again.

@cbishop: alt+tab won't work, that changes tabs and the ad is part of your current tab.

@pikahyper: @rorie: @warlock360: Just an update. This seems to be fixed, as the pop-up ads are now staying within my screen. (But geez, those are some ginormous ads.)

@cbishop: If you see anything that really impacts your experience on the site (site slowing down, overlaying content, etc.) please do send it to me in a PM.
