What is ad.turn.com and why is it locking up my access to ATS?

This doesn't work, there is no such option. FF 3.6.13, there are "Tools->Options->Privacy" but no control of cookies.

It's not under the 'tools' tab, it's under the 'edit' tab...

They must have moved the third party cookie control box its under "Tools->Options->Privacy" in Firefox version 3.03. Windows explorer hides it under an advanced menu option.

This isn't an option for those of us not using Windows and therefore, not running Norton, AVG, etc. hence the browser alternative.

Actually, I was under the impression this was a cookie not advertisement issue, so adding the exception may not even work. Sorry.

Found it! It's there, but mixed up with "Firefox will use custom history settings". Hard to guess.

Submit a complaint (under Tools) to the Staff. The more complaints they get about ad.turn.com, maybe they'll get rid of it.

Big lag here everytime I click on a post....... wish ATS would realize what some of their advertisements and many of their own pop-ups are doing. Before my area finally got high speed recently.... ATS had become inoperable with dial-up.

On Windows, edit the hosts file located in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc.
Add the following, "127.0.0.1 ad.turn.com" (without quotation marks) to the end of it so it looks like this:



# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

127.0.0.1 ad.turn.com


You can do the same thing for any other sites you want to block.

Okay for some reason, unknown to me, google tv can now load ATS. Maybe SO read the thread and tweaked the settings? Anyhoo.......thanks to whoever fixed the glitch.
