Annoying pop-up ads

Is anyone else getting those annoying pop-up ads  on ebaby? They keep poppping up in my left corner on " my ebay page" . Very annoying when checking my listing or trying to list an item to sell. They are not coming up on anything else, so it leads me to believe it is something ebay does. I don't know how to get rid of them ....any suggestions ?

For my FireFox browser, I added an ad blocker the plug in called "Ad Edge"...its blocking all the extra ads on eBAY.

I use Firefox as my browser and do not see them.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

If it's the adchoice popups, you can opt out here:

WHAT IN HELL IS DOING E-BAY TO STOP THAT STUPIDITY. - DON'T ADVERTISERS KNOW THAT NOBODY PAY ATTENTION TO THOSE STUPID ANNOYING ADS? - THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NONSENSE - IT MAKES ME TO AVOID E-BAY SINCE I WASTE MORE THAN 50% OF THE TIME GETTING RID OF THOSE ADS. - THIS IS REALLY INDIGNANT.

I have been getting them recently too.  I use Google Chrome and use all their pop up blockers and still get them.  Notice how the pop ups are turned to what you are searching for.  For example, when I search for a microsoft Surface tablet, the ads are you Surface items or electronics items.  EBay should sue these jerks for using the eBay web site to compete with eBay sellers.  I wish I could sue them for invasion of privacy.  Cactus-bob
