    Hey everybody,

    I have a really annoying issue. Sometimes if I click somewhere random in my safari browser it will open a small window with an andvertisement. Does anyone have this problem as well? If someone can help me I would be really grateful. I can try to make a screenshot and show what the ads look like.

    Hope someone can help me!

    Have you ticked the "Block Pop Ups" option in Safari Preferences>Security?

    Yes, I've checked it before. It's all fine. The problem is probably somewhere else.

    I have deleted some safari extensions. If someone has the same issue I can tell you if this worked or not ;););)

    Since you implied that uninstalling some extensions helped, I am guessing that you installed some malware extension that serves ads.

    You should install Adblock for Safari, and avoid installing anything shady.
