I’ve recently started experiencing some pop-up ads in Fun Trivia (including some especially annoying ones during timed quizzes that block the question or answers). I thought one of the features of Gold Membership was that annoyance was eliminated.

Check whether you have some browser extension (usually masquerading as a "toolbar") installed. Many of these allegedly useful programs are actually nothing but adware which modify your browser in a way that it will display ads based on keywords in the page - and FT is a prime target for those since our tiriva pages contain lots and lots of interetsing keywords!
