Description of the issue:
When reading manhwa on
manghub.io I’ll get ads whenever I try to click the “next” button. Sometimes ads will also appear just as I’m scrolling through the story, but almost always guaranteed when I hit the next or back buttons. When they appear, it will generally be multiple pop-up ones that open in new tabs and sometimes it will open other things like my App Store or Walmart app.
-edit- Actually just tapping anywhere on the page triggers the ads. I just hadn’t generally noticed as scrolling didn’t count as tapping.
Exact URL of the website in question:
https://mangahub.io/ and then anything you want to open.
Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave
The Walmart app loading was where it automatically opened my Walmart app as one of the ads.
Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)
Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?
Yes, but with all the ads.
Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):
If I try to use
Block Scripts it will stop the ads, but then it also stops all content from loading. So this little workaround I use for other sites is not efficient here.
