I just had another browser take-over while visiting this forum.

This has happened several times before, by this culprit:

I posted a thread in the General section to see if anybody else is experiencing this, but didn't get any responses.

Is there some forum setting I can change to prevent this, or is this releted to some 'soft' setting on my browser???
Currently using: Microsoft EdgeVersion 105.0.1343.33 (Official build) (64-bit).

Just to add an update:
I did a Sytem Restore to an ealier date (prior to when I believe I got that first take-over); cleared history/cookie cache; and also changed the browser's 'tracking prevention' from Balanced to Strict.
After DFO login, I am no longer see ads (not sure if that's from the changes to the 'Strict' status of the tracking prevention or intervention of the Admin to block ads - if it is Admin intervention - Thank you very much!).

I'll give it a week or so, and post another follow-up on the browser experience.
