Please check the site you are trying to load, I guess this happens only
on those sites that are not on https. This is my guess. These
advertisements are not embedded on the server side, but were injected
along the way since the transmission is not encrypted. This behavior
will disappear only when all websites run on https.
I sent a complaint to www.thehindu.com
, when this happened, requesting
them to convert to https.
Do you think it is because of MTNL? Did other ISPs also have
experienced this problem?
