Macintosh OS/Safari pop up blocker
QUESTION: Do you know how I can access the Safari popup blocker on my Mac sys 10.6? I keep getting these popups when I go to this page
and similar pages at the Garthwaite site. I close the popup and then the screen goes blank while waiting for the reload. It never reloads. I press command R to refresh the page and it does the same thing all over again. I don't experience this problem in Firefox.
ANSWER: Hi, David. The Pop-up blocker is under the Safari Menu to the left of File in the menu bar. It's right under Preferences. I hope that helps you deal with this.

QUESTION: Right. But "Block pop up windows" is checked, and yet the popups still come. If you look at the webpage I gave you, do you see the popup? - and is it actually a popup or something else? I know it might sound like a dumb question. But it seems that popups should not be appearing if I have blocked them.
David, I'm not sure what to tell you. I went to the page in both Firefox and Safari and had no difficulty with pop-ups. I was able to close the pop-ups and keep seeing the screen.
I think what you might have to do is set the pop-up setting you want, then close all your windows and begin again. And if that doesn't settle it, then I would quit and restart and see if that makes a difference in how it reads your preferences.
