I use Chrome as my primary Web Browser.
I keep multiple tabs open concurrently to around a dozen different sites.
Within the last 24 hours or so, I keep getting a small video frame in the lower right corner showing advertisements.
There is no obvious way to remove, dismiss or otherwise terminate the ad.
The ads seem to occur more frequently when displaying the full ORAFAQ main page.
Does anyone else see the same?
Does anyone know how to block or prevent the ads from even starting?

If you don't have it, try to install (free) "Adblock Plus" Chrome extension.

THANKS!

The frame still pops into existence, but nothing actually gets displayed; which is OK for me.

Thanks Again.

I too use chrome.
I have adblock (no adblock plus) installed.
I do not even get a frame like you mention.
I also have ghostery installed, but that is more for privacy than ads.
