The solution is this.
1. Go into your ipads “Settings”.
2. Scroll down to “Safari”.
3. On the right side, scroll down to a link titled “Clear History and Website Data” and click on it.
4. Click on “Clear”. (you won’t lose passwords you intentionally have saved. That’s a good thing. You should actually do this clearing as a practice every month or so, IMO, but then again I don’t care about storing my browsing hsitory. i realize some people do for some reason not worth it, IMO).
Took care of it for me on my iPad last week. My hunch is that we got cookied by an awful “advertising vendor” while surfing around or the like. It happens unfortunately and not specific to this website. Happened to my iphone too last month and same solution cleared it up. I know how valuable this board is to us all and had to pause to help out if at all possible. Good luck and thank you to this community. Going through a very hard time right now and this board is helping me day to day.
