Amazon advert in Bank mode blank tab
« on: December 05, 2019, 06:09:40 PM »
Why is Bank mode new tab page showing Amazon adverts ?
It means I now intrinsically do not trust that  page, or its provider.

I go to great lengths not to have advertising and third party loads in my bank software, and secure browser ads some.

The advert is served from an avast URL but that is not the point: I don't want advertising in a paid-for product especially my main AV.

I can see why mozilla doesn't trust you either.

no point in using safezone if I can't trust you not to leak.

For info
the advert shows this https://assets-client.avastbrowser.com/static/10230/Amazon-Last-Minute-Doodle.png
and clicks through to a paid for link to amazon..

See attached pic below:

Not showing an advert, maybe ASB AdBlock settings are still set to default?  <snip> 2 has adblock settings modified.

See <snip> attached below:

[EDIT:]  Added corrected .png attached files.
