Can't Scroll On The Site Because of The Video Ads

1,370 558 July 10, 2017 at 04:12 PM
So, the moment I try to scroll down to go through any of the pages that has them embedded and they automatically revert my page to where ever one is auto playing and I can't scroll. I can't stop the autoplay and pausing the videos has no effect. Is there anything we can do about this?

I'm using Chrome Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I don't have the issue with my Firefox but I also have a javascript blocker on it and don't allow any url's for ads on it.

Any help would be appreciated. If needed, I can screen grab and show you.

Same issue (using Firefox FWIW). SD is running a malicious javascript that forces the scroll to the bottom of the page..

Me too.

Normally I have this site whitelisted on my ad blocker but this forced me to turn it back on just to use the site.

Please fix ASAP!

Still having the same problems. Can an admin at least acknowledge that there is an issue and it's being worked on?

I just went ahead and installed an ad blocking extension into chrome. It's sad that it had to come to this but the site is basically unusable without it.

This is definitely troubling. Thanks for reporting this.

Our scanner flagged some video ads which are of course not allowed and unfortunately it looks like the work of some professionals who are cheating the system. We're raising the issue with the ad platform to find out why these were able to slip through.

We take this kind of disruption very seriously - we're all Slickdeals users ourselves and don't want to see this garbage on the site.

If their is one constant it is SD being unable to keep their ad net in check...

PHP Code:

The AD also jacks up the scroll function on your site, and forces the site to the bottom of the screen.

It's so freakin annoying! I can't turn off the sound on the stupid video ads even after clicking the disable sound icon.

Is there a way to turn them off or block them? These ads just might stop me from visiting slickdeals.

These ads are jacking up the focus of the window I'm in, WTF? NOT to mention playing loud videos I can't stop.
