    Sequim,...
    When I access the site I get a message saying that I'm using an ad blocker. That's true but per the "SNAP" message's request I've disabled it for this site as well as whitelisting it. Still get the "SNAP" message.

    Guidance?

    There are many other browser addons & host file edits that can trigger the popup.

    Some people have more than one ad blocker running.

    Also, it's maybe a long shot, but if you have something on the network that blocks ads, like a Pi-hole server, that would likely produce the same problem.

    Even the default install of Chrome on MacOS with no ad blockers or extensions / host file edits triggers that popup once or twice a month for me.

    Sounds like they are doing a lot of the things Apple has started doing in Safari... Let's see if Chrome follows suit! I doubt it, given the way Google makes most of their money.
