When im using steam browser for a minute or two a new window pops up with ads and a voice saying something like, 'you won a free iphone' it scares me everytime.
I used to have this problem before and then got rid of it somehow. For some reason i only get this when im on steam browser not on chrome, it could be because of my adblock.
but i just did a virus scan with avast and it saw nothing, so its quite frustrating because browsing this way is pretty annoying.
Btw i recently installed some mods that might be involved with this..
So i hope someone could help me

To anyone with the same problem, I found the solution, just go to steam settings - webbrowser and just delete the cache and cookies! the pop ups are now gone for me.
