Ads in background not blocked in Win10 on dailymail.co.uk
Three PC's running Win7 32, Win7 64 and Win10 64. All loaded with the latest version of 32 or 64 bit FF - 43.0.4. Ad Blockers available are Adblock with AdBlock Plus and uBloc Origin.
On the Win7 machines on dailymail.co.uk the background renders white off the main page. On the Win10 machine it renders blue and you can see the difference in the attached images. But today this blue border has changed to advertising.
Both Adblock and uBloc work correctly on the Win7 machines but neither stops the background advertising on the Win10 machine.
I have compared the FF and Blocker settings on all machines and they seem to be the same.
Any ideas on why I cannot block this background on the Win10 machine?

Those aren't ads. Those are for facebook and other such sites to share the link.
Not technically ads but being used for advertising and, as of today, now covered with get the app and bright images. It is really intrusive.
Why are two of the machines nice and clean with white backgrounds and how can I make the new machine the same?
I wish I knew. I don't like them on my screen either.
Does it mention a special website in these pop-ups?
Your screenshot are very low in resolution, so we can't check the origin.
Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.
