    Google Play Apps website for one. Music discussion forums are another, among many other sources. They sometimes take up 1/2 to 1/3 of the screen. I must be the only one with this problem. The TDPRI discussion forum that I frequent almost daily is another. As you might know, I'm not techy, so I'm not sure how to deal with this issue.

    I use Adguard for my Android phone and Windows PC. It's not free but it works well and for me it's worth the price. They do have a free trial. AdGuard — The world’s most advanced ad blocker! Get the best ad-free experience

    Odd, I don't have any ad blocker on my windows 11 PC, I use Firefox and Chrome which have built in ad blocking capabilities cause I do not get ads. My iphone Pro Max is another story when I use safari, even when Turn on Block Pop-ups and Turn on Fraudulent Website Warning are enabled.

    AdGuard is a Russian company, with Russian engineers, the majority of AdGuard developers and other employees working from Moscow, registered in Cyprus. Not a great recipe. Hard pass on security grounds. It's open source software.

    That is from a simple Google search. I think look elsewhere.
