Or the entire forum https://www.bikeforums.net/forum-sug...er-assistance/

Do you have an app to accomplish what you do with FF?

And please switch from the default or BikeforumsNG page to the Mobile one at the bottom of the page.

Get your settings worked out for the site and enable a security app if you can. Apple is not different from anything else in that regard.
I don't know Everything...I've just been at it long enough to know why it's probably messed up.

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT update your iPad. It is fairly common knowledge Apple hamstrings their iDevices with every update. In short, every time you update your iDevice it will incrementally run worse and worse until it is basically unusable. If you update, you cannot go back and in the end the only solution is to buy a new iDevice. I have been an Apple customer since 1985 and I'm completely disappointed with this but Apple has openly admitted as much multiple times over the years since the introduction of the first iPad. The official Apple line is that they compromise the device to "improve stability" and "protect the user from unexpected shut downs." I call BS on that.

I have multiple Apple iDevices and one of them is a second edition iPad Mini which I have never updated. It runs as smoothly and quickly as new, although I have lost the ability to run updated apps on the device because I refuse to update the OS. Meanwhile, other iPads and iPods were unwittingly updated into obsolescence. I have heard, but never substantiated, that there is a way to reset iDevices to their original configuration. I doubt that is true.

yeah, make sure you're using the mobile version of the website. Subscribing to a premium membership should also get rid of ads for you.
