Am in Buzz after 3 goes at getting in here, also went to quote your post and answer, and got booted out to grey screen with message saying I have an ad blocker and asking me to disable it.
I back spaced and got back here. I use Mozella Firefox browser.

Hi Keeper.

Regarding your post on help thread
''From keeper

Our techies are saying that what you are experiencing is what our site automatically does whenever it detects an ad blocker, our techie is suggesting that you and anyone else that may be using an adblocker to make sure that you're adblocker is disabled when on Buzz, as it seems that Buzz is detecting the adblocker.

Hope this helps.

Hi Pats, I paid a technician to come out to fix this. He said my ad blocker which is on Kaspersky security, is set to allow Buzz50 through, he also sent PM to Mila asking if there was anything else we could do.

I am hoping. I got in here today after 3rd try, and was booted back to grey page with message about ad blocker again, so I backspaced with arrow left hand corner of webpage and got back in that way. I don't know how long I can stay on here before being booted out again.

Thanks Pat.

Hi Keeper
I can imagine how disappointing and annoying it must be.
After site updates it seems that depending on the browser we used, the site reacts differently, dectecting adblockers, and blocking them etc.....

Since you already whitelisted Buzz on your adblocker, how about trying to access Buzz from a different browser, maybe that would do the trick?

What browser are you currently using?

I have been successfully using Mozella Firefox for years. Am now using, only for Buzz, Chrome browser, it is working and I am into Buzz successfully. Thank you Pats.

Good to hear that some are getting sorted but it’s also very frustrating that others are not.
Why there is such an anomaly with the different problems currently being experienced is a mystery to me.

I do need to stress yet again to those who haven’t already done so, to refresh your device as this can often do the trick.

Abit odd that Mr Macy who uses Edge is having problems, yet i am using Edge and log in first time every time
No problems here logging in at any time
Edge Browser
No super protection just the basic free defender
