I have been going crazy over this issue too. There seems to be a few issues being discussed and lumped together here.
I believe OP and the majority of the others including me seem to be having the same problem.
To clarify, it seems as though Android users on Chrome are experiencing issues with one or more ads that cause erratic behavior. Specifically, while
viewing the site on mobile, typical working ads get displayed near the top right. At least one ad is not loading and remains a black box with LOADING
and a spinning circle. Normal ads display correctly, but that glitching ad is redirecting to the ad window as a full page. The redirect is a blank
page with the LOADING ad showing, but it then cycles through the ads correctly in full page. The URL does not change so you can't just go back in the
browser. You have to refresh the page. Sometimes it happens every few seconds, and sometimes it doesn't do it for an hour. At it's worst, you can
barely read a page before giving up.
Only my newer Android tablet does this. I am on home WiFi. I have Avast and know my device is clean with no issues.
It IS true that it is not ATS causing the issues. It is definitely my "fault" if some of the snarkiest people feel better. However, as an affected
user, there is nothing much we can do about it. It is the combo of Chrome, specific Android versions, and whatever ad is involved. It is impossible
to report which ad, specifically, is to blame since not actually LOADING is the base issue. Hopefully, it is a glitched ad and not this ad server
itself. Soon, the ad might go away or be replaced, but the ad server itself won't go away.
If your current setup is to blame like mine, just browse ATS in desktop mode from Chrome as long as the issue persists. It might not be ideal for
phones or small devices, but it is far better than constant redirects and refreshes. Just use that work around for now.
