Default takes me to ADS if I hit any link, like "new posts"

Argh. Periodically, when I'm on PT, when I go to click on new posts or search or any buttons on top bar, a new browser opens with a big fat ad. I do not like this at all. Adblocker screws with some of my online work so I dont use it, suggestions?

Try adfender.

An issue I have is some posts I click on to read and nothing shows up, blank page. I can see in the column to the right side of the new posts section people are replying but for some reason it will stay blank.

if your browser is being misdirected, you may have a little trojan.

BTW, are you viewing on a mobile e-toy? or a lappy/desk ?

I'm on a laptop with wireless. I ran some Malwarebytes Antimalware and AVG.

It happens maybe 1/10 times. It takes me to the ad that is at top of screen. Today it was Zinsser... has not happened since, but it has happened before a number of times. I usually close the window, open a new on and go to PT again, and it's fine.

Weird
