Annoying ad popup at bottom of screen

Post by ramair455 » Mon Mar 03, 2014 4:17 pm

How do I turn this crap off? If I am shopping online, I don't need ANYONE else to offer "ideas" as to what I may want. Here's a novel thought...I already know what I want, which is why I am looking for it online instead of in person. Every time I go from one page to another, it appears and proudly says "brought to you by Slim Browser". Adblocker is ON, as is pop-up blocker. Those only stop that nonsense from other parties, not Slim Browser itself.

Is there a way to turn this garbage off, or do I just need to uninstall and go back to Firefox?

Try Tools:Options:Shopping Assistant

uncheck "show related deals and coupons while shopping online"
OK out of it

SB will remember this setting for update installations

I also thank oftentired but I found "show related deals and coupons while shopping online"
at : Tools\Options\Shopping Assistant, not Misc.
Thanks again anyway, I wonder how it got turned on in the first place but it was buggin the heck out of me.
