I don't know how to reduce the display size on a phone. One a PC, hold the control key & tap the minus/dash/hyphen key once or twice.

With the use of Ad blocker plus, all you do is right click on the ad, drop to block this ad, and it's gone from your view.

Don't know if there is memory on a phone for the program.

Might be worth checking into.

I will report this to the techs and see if they can help. You might try to clear your cache but not sure that would help.

@Startingover Th next time it happens can you try to grab a screenshot of it and also try get the ad's URL. I'll send it to our adopts team to get it blocked.
