The problem is non existent over WiFi. Only happens on mobile data so Java isn't the issue.

If it aint, disable Java and see how you go.

I even installed AdBlockPlus (non play store) and it made no difference, so the browser was just being hijacked by something not related to my phone. I tried probably five or more browsers. I don't think OS is the issue here. It was only on my phone, not PC.

No dramas here (yet) on Telstra and Virgin (Optus) Mac, iOS, Windows 7, 8.1 and Android

Zero issues here on Mac OS or iOS.

I've been getting hijacked off this website on my phone for a months now.  Bloody annoying!

Oh good lord... how big is the grin on your face right now :D

The Beyernator has a new owner Wink

I had something similar for a long time when I tried to go to STOC. It would redirect to a site called url4short or something like that.

I was also getting browser hijack bad enough to make it unusable. Using WiFi is OK, even tethering off my wife's phone seemed OK.

it is so bad sometimes Robbo that i can't view the forum at all.  Myagi & Pezz are onto it, but doesn't look like an easy fix?

That would explain last week for me. ALDI SIM (Telstra network) whilst I was away with the family at South West Rocks.

there is an issue between Telstra and the host site where if you're using your phone to log in, some type of Malware hijacks your browser.  it is not on the server, so moves have been made to sort it with the Telco's i think?  might be happening on Optus too?  doesn't happen when you use a phone

IMO, the biggest issue using a phone here is the big picture posts like matespace and autoglym. It's not helped by the interactive adds.
December 21, 2014, 05:54:40 AM
Reinstalling apps to see when the intrusive browser hijack returns to see which causes it.
December 21, 2014, 05:53:06 AM
I've been having serious add issues on my browser, didn't matter which browser. Was trying all sorts of security apps etc, nothing worked. Did some manual deleting and a hard app cull and it's under control now.

Less BS than used to be Russ. It's a shoutbox, random stuff comes up. What should it be for then? Just to have a whinge? It's working fine for me.
December 21, 2014, 02:34:37 AM
Just use the Fb Page....
December 21, 2014, 01:32:16 AM
This page needs to back off on the bs. I can barely use it on android.  Absolutely fkn over it.

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley

Hey All,

Just a quick one to let you know the downtime we've been copping lately should come to an end as of now as we've moved host.  Cool

The almighty Sir Pezzalot has moved us to a new, beefy host. For those tech inclined we're now residing in Amazon's AWS Cloud - so here we are, all modern and gone full whack cloud computing. We'll be monitoring performance over the next days, weeks and months to see how things go.  Thumbsup

Actual software / feature updates are in planning and we'll let you guys and girls know when we're going to pull the trigger on that. Worth noting that we're considering a bit of a feature clean up and re-build on a new platform that will most likely be an inclusive process from your end. We want to strip things back, do the upgrade and target great performance and usability with the community features we all really want so your feedback as we bounce through this process will be useful and sought after.

Cheers,
Miyagi

Hi All,

A quick cheers and beers to everyone who has dropped in, dropped out and bounced around the FordXR5Turbo.com community over the past 2,738 days of existence - we recently ticked over 9001 members so I felt it was a solid arbritary number to celebrate.  Thumbsup

Thumbsup 9001 Members!  Thumbsup

We may be working with a 7.5 year old child who occassionally has issues with authority, punctuality and humour but I'm sure we'd all agree they've been a welcome addition to our lifes.

Thanks again for being part of such a great community I never expected would become what it has. Much love.  Cool

Cheers,
Miyagi
