Hi, check the thread from "Maltese Jane" ~ that may help you a bit. I think they are trying to get rid of the ad .

Michelle, Janine started a thread about this yesterday. Maggie asked if someone could take a screenshot so she could send it to Yung. I can't do it because I have Firefox and Adblock Plus so I don't get any ads, thank goodness. It seems to be mainly Mac users who are having the problem.

Very, very annoying !!

Michelle, if you have ad-block from Firefox you can get another ad-on from Firefox that blocks ad-block blockers. It never ends.

It's a free add on for Firefox. I get no ads on SM and very few on Facebook now.

Yes, I'm getting it too, it's annoying and relentless. I have a PC - it's showing up on that.

I sent a note to Yung and he said he would work on it - it's no longer on mine, so I guess he got rid of it!
