Advertisements over the report?

Published by gbal, 8 September 2019, 16h31. This page has been displayed 1228 times.

Hi to all.
Since few days (month?) I wondered to see on my smartphone that while reading a report I notice some advertisement flying over the report text instead of seeing it on the right side (see the image).
This happens only with my Xiaomi A2 Lite with Android 9; reading the report with another, identical device with the same SW version or other two smartphones and with the PC the advertisements stay on their proper side without disturbing the reading.
Does anybody knows this problem and/or the solution?

Hi Sven86; SOLVED!
I do not the reason but I went on Chrome / Settings / Site settings / Data stored from sites; then I cleared all these data.
Now all itìs ok!

Con la tua istruzione finalmente sono riuscita anch`io a togliere la finestra della pubblicità dall`immagine del sito di Hikr. sul mio smartphone!:-)

It's a bug from Google, or maybe from your phone. It's not even the right size. This ad is supposed to stay on the right column.

Ah, great. I was going to write google an email, but if it's fixed itself I don't need anymore.

If somebody else have the problem tell me and I write them.

I am afraid to say that the remedy I suggested for the unanchored advertisements on Hikr pages (when read on an Android device with Chrome) works only for a while.
The only way I found to avoid definitively the drawback is to adopt another browser with adv blocking feasility.
I tried Mozilla Firefox with uBlock extension and they together work fine.

I wrote an email to google, with a link to this post, I hope they fix it soon.

Thanks Stani!
I have the same problem, using the Lightning browser (5.1.0) on a Fairphone 2.
Clearing data doesn't solve this problem on my device. Anyway, the option "Clear web storage on exit" is activated.

on android / chrome.

In firefox you can adjust your privacy settings (Content blocking, "Seitenelemente blockieren" and you won't see any adds anymore.
To see the google maps, you have to undo the blocking.

Not for me Alpin_Rise. When I use Firefox and uBlock I don't see the adv but I can see the Google map keeping the adv blocked. (Firefox for Android 68.2.0)

I don't use an adblocker but the Firefox function "content blocking" - it works like an adblocker since it blocks content from other websites, example google ads and google maps.

Okay, so Google finally answered and they want to know which ads are shown over the report.

So, when you see one, could you please take a screenshot where the ad is visible and post it here or send it to me with the URL of the page, your phone model, OS, browser and any other info, then I send that to google.

gbal says: RE:

Yes, be sure Stan

Stani™ says: RE:

Okay, I sent them stuff from gbal.
You can send me more examples by email: admin at

So finally Google gave us a technical answer.
Now I changed something on the report page, but not on the others, so please go check if the problem is still here.

Like this page for example:

It's still the same issue on my device.

It doesn't matter if I use the Lightning or the Ecosia browser:

Anyway, if I log in, there is no more advertisement to be seen. So being logged in seems to be the best solution.

I know. We already exchanged many email with google but they always find some excuse to not to try to fix it. Like typical customer support : try this, try that. I'm super disappointed with them. Adsense support sent us to adwords, adword back to adsense, etc.
If they cannot fix it we will move this ad somewhere else on the page.
