    12 pop-up in Safari.
    Just recently, my Safari browser will randomly open a pop-up window (even though "Block pop-up windows" is enabled) and the url will always start with before it eventually changes and sends me to some website. Anyone know how I can get rid of this? I tried reseting Safari, but it still happens.

    And I know, I know... Someone will feel the need to tell me how much better Chrome/Firefox is than Safari. I'll probably switch soon. I just want to get rid of whatever this is first.

    MacBook Pro OS 10.5.8

    When you reset Safari, did you include 'delete all cookies'? I can't be 100% certain, but I think you'll find a google cookie is the source and cause of the popup. You can trace it manually through Safari > Prefs > Security > Show Cookies.

    The latest Safari update btw includes enhanced popup blocking.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

    I did delete all cookies, but I will try again. And I'll check for the update.
