That suggestion doesn't work on Firefox. (The link is for chrome users only though)
I've tried to find out where to stop or at least warn me of any redirect attempts in Firefox but I can't find the settings.
Resetting the Google Ads ID does seem to work for a while.
Maybe try using Chrome for a while, just to see if it fixes it?

Don't forget to enable the framebusting setting

I did that. I also looked at the other settings and didn't understand many of them.
The redirects weren't periodic so will monitor for now.

Thanks for the advice

Excellent... thought I may have fixed it but didn’t want to ask in case I jinx’d it

I think it was related to a Google partner network, so I banned a bunch of them.

Just this afternoon I tried accessing the forum and chrome warning that the site isn't https anymore. So I avoided it.

Now it's back to the secure site! Strange.
