    Popups, or even worse, spyware!!!!!!! aaaaa
    is anyone else terrified of their apples being infected with crappy spyware and popups? ive been using safari lately and am noticing alot more popups, and they're not just ads from the site youre on, theyre the kind that are like, lose 20lbs now! i dont want one of my favorite features of apple computers to diminish. state your opinion, or if you have any ideas, software or news on the subject

    WOW that is amazing I haven't seen any at all. What sites do they appear in? And that oughta be reported to Apple! And on third thought see if repair permissions helps

    Repair permissions?! That has nothing to do with the Internet! I did this afternoon too because I reinstalled and ****, nothing.
    Apple technology is going to make me insane. I swear.

    It would help if the pop ups involve instructions or file use that supercedes some permissions level Another thought: delete history more often and empty cache and remove cookies (preferences)

    I see pop-ups :eek:

    I clicked on the link and it opened in a new window. At first nothing happened so I thought I was in the clear, but a few moments later another window opened.

    And before people ask, yes I did have the Block Pop-Up Windows checked.


    I'm scared too :eek:

    I had a page pop-up about 2-3 seconds after opening that page. Quite weird. Its the first time I have seen pop-up blocker fail. It even blocks yahoo launch video window, so this must be very weird.

    hmm i let it sit and and it did open up a new window after a few seconds....my guess is they have something in their html to do an actual open new window instead of doing a standard javascript
