OK never caught that one... I usually get "call microsoft at this number to correct a big problem on your computer" with a box to enter my system password (if I was an idiot), the monotone woman reading the same phrase over and over and the alarm, but for some reasons just with Edge.

It isn't 1Fichier per se as I got it from Uptobox, whatever file host WIPF use, Deposit Files and some others in the past... it's more a case of a website not checking the "publicity" they approve if they pay their bill.

Finally took the bait with the access offer for a year...

No publicity and no tracking anymore... 13.52$ in canadian money is sure not that much to support my favorite file hoster.

I've always been pro-1filchier. Even though I can't acquire it now.... possibly cos I'm thick

But I got Opera etc and various other tweeks, but I'm not succeeding.
Anyway....

Following this thread, I do notice a similarity from the past.

I was an RS Prem member for yonks, and then, possibly as they came under DCMA threats, RS in their last 6-9 months changed/adjusted just about everything. Timing of d/ls - restricting Free / allowing Free /Minimising monthly d/ls / Unlimted d/ls... it seemed they sent a new ordnance every few days. In the end they gave everyone notice to save and remove their uploads.
Was a classy site till they went from pillar-to-post.

1Filchier, unfortunately ~ imo ~ is going through this scenario. Changing procedures, choices etc Without a true destination.

I'm upset, because I'm very pro- 1Filch.... and feel it's only a matter of time before I can use them again ... when I learn

Opera is horrible, partially off-screen blank pop-ups, close them, and the then off-screen
download popup. click the download icon on the side-bar, to see he file downloading.

It's crap, but currently seems to work for 1fichier.

If you turn off your ad-blocker you should really be using a script blocker
(script safe for chrome) otherwise malvertising / bit coin mining / ransomware
will find a way on board.Disabling plugins is always a good idea

On Firefox its easily done - plugins - which last time i used it never updated itself automatically unlike its extensions - even the manual update facility was shown to be unreliable when compared to visiting adobes website.

On chrome you need to burrow to settings / advanced / content / flash - follow arrow on right and move the circle to the left to block it
If you really need it you can reverse it easily


Malwarebytes has a few small tools for removing crap from browsers that might cause
similar pop-unders

adw cleaner - scans and then you have the option to remove
usually smart to do a bit of research before removing results
as occasionally they turn up false positives.
