Safari Pop Up Blocker Not Working


Distinguished Member

I have OSX Mountain Lion installed and the latest version of Safari. The pop up bocker doesn't work at all. I had the same problem with OSX Lion. The pop up blocker only seemed to work when I had OSX Snow Leopard. Anyone any ideas or recommend a good pop up blocker?

There are know issues with the safari pop blocker and I agree with a lot of people that there should be more control in it, however try this app GlimmerBlocker which is supposed to be good.

+1 for Glimmer Blocker. I also use Click 2 Flash (sorry, I have a poor connection now and cant search out the link), this is good when you are on a slow connection for stripping out flash plugins, until you actually click on them.

It's something to do with the way Safari now handles the page requests, flash blockers and such you to exploit a flaw which has now been closed. The guy who runs the Click 2 Flash site has a good explanation of what the problem is.
