You may be experiencing pop unders. That are windows that pop under your current window. I believe that none of the browsers out there, can prevent this.

A lot of people have tried to answer your question. There are a new kind of Pop Ups called Pop Unders as they pop up under the browser window and you see them later. Rman tried to point that out. So far I have found no browser that blocks all of them. I use both PC's and Macs with Windows and OSX and pretty much all popular browsers as I do Web Design, and in fact I have found Safari under Tiger to have less pop ups, whether on top or underneath than any of the other browsers. Firefox here does it more on either Windows or OSX than Safari with the sites I visit.

In time they will figure how to block some of the new Pop Unders, but for now I would say Safari does a better job than most.

Try. repair permissions. After every software update, and about every 2 weeks: close all apps and log totally off. Log on, go in Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message -getting disk information- select volume (below the hard drive name -upper left corner). Just highlight it. Now look to the lower two things are there near the middle, verify permissions, repair permissions. Click repair permissions

I totally agree...

Repairing permissions (or zapping PRAM) DOES NOT help for all problems!
Especially in this case it's totally inapropriate, as it will not make Safari (or any other browser) block pop-unders...

oh c'mon. i meant no harm with my response.
i didn't call him/her names or anything, right?
but ok, i will not show any emotion anymore, no problem!!

thanks for the replies, guys. they do appear under the window i am currently using.
they usually pop up (or actually under) at: www.isohunt.com or www.dictionary.com
sometimes they appear when i browse through some lyrics sites, too.

more and more, actually. very annoying indeed >_<

I just tried those two sites on the latest Firefox on the PC. Firefox blocked the PopUP but not the Pop Under on www.isohunt.com.

Emotion's good. Just don't bite people's heads off for trying to help you. I visited both sites you mentioned with Safari 2.0 and no pop-ups or unders. Try those sites with Camino or an alternative browser.
