    Hello, I've recently been getting odd popups while trying to enter text in the message reply boxes.

    It only happens on this website and no other forums etc.

    I think you have problem with your add sever trying to sever popups by thelook of it?.

    Not sure why you think it's this site. I'm not saying categorically it isn't this site But I'm not getting any popups. Try running an anti-malware program such as Malwarebytes and delete anything it picks up.

    Just to check everything I've just run a full scan with Avast followed by AVG and then Malwarebytes and the phone comes up as clean with all three.

    Could be your touch screen has a delay and picking up banner adds when you try to select reply.

    It's done it just reading threads as well, not happened today yet though.

    They aren't proper adverts either of you look at the screen grabs..
