    stupid ads that I click on by mistake, I've literally had this happen to me over a hundred times since getting my iOS devices, why does apple allow this, the back button is useless because it closes the previous tab and replaces it with an ad or website that you either click by mistake or don't expect to require a new tab. I've came close to throwing this thing across the room due to this, I wonder is Steve has ever had this problem...

    I'VE never had this problem. Is this only on certain sites? Or every site?

    Do you have 'Block Pop Ups' turned on in the Safari settings?

    I don't understand the question, either. Check you Block Popus setting. Any specific website examples you can share?

    He means that you're only able to have 8 tabs open at a time. They start closing if you accidentally open a new tab. I have a solution for that, jailbreak and the tab windows are limitless.

    If that is it you're a very good guesser because that's not what he wrote.

    How does that cause an ad to appear?
