    All of a sudden I'm getting these pop up ads from Slick Savings, Deals, and other savings sites. How do I get rid of them?

    When the ads pop up, it shows a settings icon, but the only choice is to remove the pop up ad for the site I'm visiting "forever". How do I remove them for good so they don't pop up at new sites I visit?

    Thank you.

    I found the solution.

    I went to SAFARI > PREFERENCES > EXTENSIONS

    From here, I uninstalled each ad that was enabled within AD BLOCK.

    How it got there, is beknownst to me.

    Yup, that's the extensions many of use have. Ad Block + is also out
