    Doe anyone else have a problem with Chrome on the iPad2 randomly and automatically opening the app store? I happens all the time (when I am not even touching the screen) and always for the same slot machine app. But it doesn't happen on my iPhone at all.

    Any ideas how to stop it from doing this? I have "block pop-ups" set to on, but don't see any other settings options which might be relevant.

    Thanks. I don't get it. I will try deleting and reinstalling the app when I get home. I have cleared all my browsing date numerous times and that hasn't helped, so I don't know what else it could be.

    Yes! It is driving me INSANE. It started happening after I jailbroke my iPad and installed the app to make Chrome my default browser.

    See here:

    It's an ad network using the app store for pop-over ads.

    Write to Apple security and complain so the developer will get slapped and we can kill this before every damn ad network starts doing this.

    Wow, thanks. I thought it was confined to Chrome for some reason. Good to know it isn't just me.

    It is damn annoying though.
