    Not every pop-up is blocked. There are many different ways of brining up pop-up windows. Some even invoke a similar function to bring up a window. Just know that you'll block at least 80% of windows, the other 20 is by coding, lots and lots of coding.

    I believe if you use firefox. it does not allow another window to open unless you have asked for it.

    I use firefox at home and have never had a pop up open while using it.

    weird, I have never had a pop up on safari, until yesterday and today, i have had 3

    someone out there must have found a way around it... lets hope a security update is on the way.

    This game, off of addictinggames.com

    http://206.225.85.168/games/savethering.html

    it has given me two different kind of popups, the first, is just a new window after you play the game and the second, is like an actual pop up..... it was horrible... i felt like a windows user for a few minutes :(

    I've gotten one (mind you, just the one) pop-up on MacOSRumors (yeah, I know, notoriously unreliable - I enjoy reading it despite that). I wonder if Shiira (my current default browser) and Safari share the same pop-up blocker because it's implemented in WebKit, which both browsers use.

    I have been getting pop ups in the past few weeks at www.drudgereport.com, but nothing compared to IE on my work PC.

    I got one yesterday as well and was surprised. I have not received on pop-up in a year and a half of using Safari - period.

    Is this a 10.3.8 bug? :confused:

    I get that on Drudgereport but it just opens and closes a blank pop-up in a fraction of a second.

    For the popup starting to coming up you can blame firefox popularity. It has gotten enough market share to make it a large enough target to start figure out to get around and so pop-ups are going to start hiting the non IE browser now

    www.rnc.com does it for me. Consistently (I use Safari). Went there with mistaken URL, but thought I'd post back here.

    I know why: I'm an idiot. I was connecting to another Mac (⌘-K) but had Safari on top instead of the Finder. Result: pop-up blocking turned off. :eek:

    Early on with Safari (well, early on for me...aka January 2004!), I used to turn it off for specific requested pop-ups that were incorrectly handled (and most of which work correctly with subsequent updates), and I used to keep forgetting to turn it on again. :) Happens to all of us. ;)

    I do however like the way Firefox deals with this, since it has the relatively easy-to-get-at option to force even requested pop-ups into tabs.

    I never get pop ups either. I tried all those sites and ways and nothing but the main web page. I have not done the latest security update- would that have anything to do with it? would be ironic wouldn't it.

    Now that I wrote this I will probalby start getting pop ups- on my PC at school :D
