      So about once a day for the last week when I'm on my iPhone for some reason vortex just exits out of safari and tries to open up the AppStore.

      I use a shortcut to the mk7 forums, and after about 5 seconds on the page the phone will open the App Store with a weird heading up at the tab. Sometimes safari is still open and has a weird heading at the top.

      Only happens in the vortex forums no other site. Cant duplicate the issue with any other website I visit.

      Anyone else? I close out the page before anything opens in the AppStore.

      This is a problem caused by unscrupulous ad servers. The vortex isn't directly responsible. However, I think the vortex needs to have a chat with its ad people. It has gotten really bad as of late.

      Can you sent me a pm with the browser you are using, your OS and if you are on mobile or not. If you have the URL for where you are being redirected to as well please. I need to report this to our ad traffic team.

      I'm getting lots of redirects to the App Store to random spam game apps etc safari on iOS 10.2 getting really annoying. Can't read or open threads without it happening.
