    Ok all,

    Just a quick question. Is there anyway of stopping pop-up's from appearing when using Safari? I don't get many just the odd one or two but they are really annoying.

    All help appreciated.

    Even with that option selected there are a few pop-ups that get through.

    I use Camino. I NEVER get pop-ups. You might try another browser. Although the type of sites you visit is probably the predominant reason you are getting pop-ups.

    Oh ok. Thanks. I had missed that Popup blocker thing. Have now checked it and will see what happens.
