How do I get rid of these advertisements that pop up in the middle of the screen every time I visit the site? I'm a paying member, why am I forced to see this crap.

While we're at it, how do I get rid of the Crunchyroll Expo banner at the top too.

Fortunately they don't seem to do popups very often, but today's was really annoying.

I can tolerate a popup when it's very easy to see where to click to close it, but today's was designed in such a way that the close option was obscured. Had a few panicky moments feeling irate that my only options were to "Add to Queue" or "Watch Now"

Google and Mozilla Firefox have Ad Blockers to my knowledge.

You can use a manual blocking feature to right click it and slide the slider till the image is gone. I have not figured out any other way.


Also, pop ups are complete bull. They are what ones sees on shady pornographic websites, not from a legitimate and reputable company if you ask me.

I've got uBlock Origin, but even after adding the stuff to an element blocker, they still show up after a refresh. It's so annoying.

Edit: Scratch that, I did some tweaking of the filter settings and got it to permanently remove the banner. Way more effort than it needed to be.

What is going on with that anyway? I have never had a pop-up on CR before now all of a sudden I'm getting irritating "suggestions" popping up when I go to my queue. Who thought that was a good idea? >.>

Is there *any* scenario where an unsolicited web pop up doesn't irritate the end user?

I would also like these removed or have an option to disable them.
