My guess is that sites with crappy ads all over the place are shady anyway.

It must have been something else then. The Content page houses the pop-up blocker. Because of ads. No muss, no fuss.
It's quite frustrating and it's like navigating a mine field. I hate them..... I've never seen a pop-up or other malicious ad on the site, so I don't really understand what you're so upset about. As you can see below, this particular pop-up went as far as to get a download ready for me, which could fool you if you were looking for a legitimate download
FIX THE ADVERTISING and people will not have to use ad blockers to protect themselves from the garbage the ad companies are shoving in our face.

It’s not a bad idea to use a pop-up blocker testing website to make sure your tools are doing their job. We don't have direct control over what ads you see, unfortunately. Sure, some text off to the side or in the middle of an article is annoying, but I don't know any legitimate sites that have blaring, flashing ads. Mmm, I wonder why?
Finally, you will have to deal with after effects, like messed up browser settings or a broken Internet connection. The rapid rise of Twitter brought a never-ending need to use as few... Is there some way to tell that someone reading your page is suppressing your ads, so you don't get credit for the eyes on your page? and he prescribes you modern medicine.
Also be sure that Firefox is blocking attack websites and forgeries for you; there’s no reason to turn these off.

Like Firefox, it can only be toggled on or off.

What's wrong with good advertising? Within a few days I was again seeing those ads that jump, change color and broadcast loud audio as well as those trying to lure people to some shady site. Sorry I do not know how to zip files. It is the information in the websites programming that is sending you this information, if you think since you have been on the comcast service that it is their fault.
Highly recommended. 0 Kudos Posted by Naddie 11-03-2003 05:07 PM Most Valued Poster View All Member Since: 10-17-2003 Posts: 8,389 Message 25 of 34 (264 Views) Re: Comcast is KILLING me It’s always wise to visit the website in question yourself, just as you should never click a link in an email telling you that you need to re-input your password. Comcast does not send you popups. The same thing happened to my parents and my mother and father in law when they started their Comcast service.
They are COMPLETELY different sources, and AdBlock (the later one from a development standpoint) is doing some shady things, such as allowing unique IDs sent to their list of "good advertisers."

I do think you have some serious issues with popups though, as suggested above.
