Apple Safari Full-Screen Issues

When I use Apple Safari in full-screen mode I sometimes experience some issues that disrupt workflow significantly.

The first issue is encountered with pop-up windows (typically advertisements). These windows open in a new Space (separate to the Space with the original instance of Apple Safari) and cannot be closed without exiting full-screen mode and then closing the window.

The second issue is when activating a magnet-link. When the link is clicked, the Space slides to the right (displaying the Desktop), and then nothing happens. This, I assume, is due to the activation of the Transmission app window, but there is no visual indication of that. If I am activating a series of magnet-links this process becomes frustrating as I am having to return to the Space containing Apple Safari after each link click.

Does anyone know whether there's a way to stop either of these issues from occurring?

Hi,

what are your settings in Safari / Preferences / Tabs ?
Thank you for your reply.

My current Apple Safari settings for Tabs have the 'Open pages in tabs instead of windows' option set as 'Always' and the '-click opens a link in a new tab' and 'When a new tab or window opens, make it active' fields are both unchecked.

In Safari preferences turn on the pop up blocker in the security settings.

That seems to have fixed the issue with pop-up windows, but the issue with magnet-links still seems to be present.

Thank you for your help, too.
