    Sometime in the past few days, web pop-ups stopped working in Safari for me. I am running Safari 3.0.4 on Mac OS 10.4.11 (on a G4 powerbook).

    I have checked to be sure the "block pop-up windows" is dechecked, and I have also gone into preferences and made sure that Java and Javascript are enabled, and that the "block pop-up windows" there is also dechecked.

    Any ideas about this? It's a pain, since many websites use pop-ups (for example, I like to enlarge photos from the NY Times).

    Thanks!

    Do you use Adblock?

    If so, go to Safari and open up preferences and deselect the "Safari Adblock is enabled".

    Here is the window:

    No Adblock

    Not that I know of... have never downloaded anything like that, and this behavior is new, as of this week. No changes that I can think of...

    I should mention that I really notice this in situations where there's (I assume) a 'target="_blank"' kind of pop-up. For instance, my very own website.

    In other words, this is for things I click on myself, not popup ads.

    Any ideas on restoring this functionality?

    Thanks,

    I am not sure but see if this problem still persists after you delete the Safari p-list.

    Its in /Users/your user name/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist
