I didnt think Macs and Safari were prone to popup windows. Yes, I have the block popups activated in Safari. It only happens in Myspace so far but its the same ad anytime I click anything. I searched for popup blockers for Mac and it doesnt seem any exsist, what should I do?

Yes Myspace. I get the vast majority of my business from there. Are there any 3rd party popup blockers for Macs?

Pop up blockers are never perfect. The problem is, sometimes sites have a button you click on that opens a new window (one you actually want), so the blocker shouldn't block this. Some sites use that fact to open popups.

Having said that, firefox + adblock. No popups, no ads, just whatever it is you actually wanted to look at :D It's not as 'mac friendly' as it should be, and it's slow on older computers, but still well worth using just for adblock.

Just downloaded Firefox and I am running that now. Popup isnt there at all which means its in Safari, so thats not good.

No add ons in Firefox. Also, a friend suggested I reset Safari and that seems to have worked so thats good to know.
