I should reiterate.........

The web site adds that pop-up automatically as Don refer's to (those on top, around the border and at the bottom of some of the last posts) cannot be suspended everytime by the "tips" I provided previously (in most cases) if one uses Google as a search engine as an example......................!

There are exceptions if one knows how to circumvent the web site's protocol.

Using the tools provided by Chrome, Firefox, Moxilla, ect....(even Explorer)... will not completely suspend those add's after every visit or log-in.......they are not as effective as advertised, since those providers would be "shooting themselves in the foot" and "biting the hand that feeds them" if they truly offered a way to suspend advertising with their marketing partners (like the web-sites we frequent).......the issue of the add's being in your face automatically is really in the web-sites control.........they have the ability to determine how, when and where each add will be present.......don't be mistaken, this issue can be resolved on the web-sites end, but they will have to find another way to support ($$$) the site without writing a check to make us all happy...!

However, there are after market tools that can be (purchased) that will do the job quite well.........even suspend Windows 10 Explorer intrusions. They are pricey and really over kill if one is not annoyed or experiencing a slow down in operation.

I'm not going to suggest any Malware, Pop-Up remedies since that would require much time and really is a personal preference........but the free versions of Malwarebytes, Webroot, Anvisoft do work and do not cause (in my experience) any slow down or interruptions with the operating system.......of course, the "pay-for" versions work quite well........I've used each from time to time on my business pc's.......but. like I stated, if one is not bothered by the "intrusions", setting your tools properly within the Chrome. Firefox, Moxilla ect.......environments will suspend the annoyances for awhile.

The web-site really is control here.......it's up to them when it comes to advertisement and tracking their volume.

Back in August '15 I posted a thread called New kind of annoying pop up ads. It was similar to what I'm seeing here, except the ads would appear and disappear quickly, displacing the text of the post, making it hard to read. Soon after I posted the thread, the problem went away; I think the forum host fixed it somehow.

I suspect advertisers must have specialists who are tasked with making advertising as intrusive and obnoxious as possible.

I also believe that car designers have a Friday night competition - to see who can design the most ugly and awful car before they go home !!

Second - that Architects have a world-wide contest to see who can design the most outlandish and most expensive house on the smallest spot !
