    I'm hoping someone can help me out here cause these pop-ups got me nuts! I use Safari 6 and since I first saw pop-ups I installed the extension called Adblock but I still get pop-ups. I don't get the ordinary type pop-ups you would expect but pop-ups come when I see a link or a highlighted name and when I point to it I get directed to a place that is wanting to sell me something.Has anyone ever seen or heard of that? Its so weird and very annoying! If anyone knows how I can rid myself of it please help. Thank you.:apple:

    1. Do not click on/use the links.
    2. Use Firefox + Adblock Plus + NoScript.
    3. Problem solved.
