When I click on a thread title on the VideoHelp.com home page, I frequently get a single small Google ad in the middle of the screen and the rest of the page containing the thread is blurred. The address for the ad is https://www.videohelp.com/#google_vignette
Is this a bug or a new feature of Google ads or malware? Malwarebytes didn't find anything that might cause this on my computer. I can't use an adblocker or popup blocker at present to see if they might solve my problem because they interfere with one of the covid vaccine scheduling websites that I am using.

Maybe is something related to the videohelp site (see this: https://support.google.com/admanager/thread/85569878?hl=en or this: https://support.google.com/adsense/thread/21238559?hl=en)

I installed Chrome an an old computer and was able to see the vignette ads. Block googleads.g.doubleclick.net in your hosts file to get rid of them (and many other google ads too). Better yet, use the hosts file from this site:
To block nearly 10,000 ad and malware servers.

Oops! Thanks for catching the typo, robertoferrari. I fixed the original post so as not to cause confusion.
Google Adsense automatically adds new features sometimes.
But I will disable those ads. Very annoying.
It should be disabled now. Let me know if they still popups.
