oops! only works on IE
so how come i don't see popups with Firefox....
IE AND Firefox?
Are you suggesting that this program you mentioned DOES work EVEN with Firefox? I might have to try it
if this is true.
a.tribalfusion.com still pop up after installation of your program.
(NT) sorry "only works with IE"
I even have drudgereport.com in my block list in Firefox and still I get a.tribalfusion.com ALL THE TIME when I click on a news story. It is aggravating to say the least, but I suppose old Matt has to pay the rent some way.
Of course I never see it as I right click on the tab in my toolbar and delete, but still, it is pissy.
no soloution yet
Forgot to mention that I even have a.tribalfusion.com in my Firefox block list and still it pops up.
This is from a tech guy where I work:
This is because the evil pop-up ad coders have figured a way to make the flash
browser plug-in pop-up windows. This annoying behavior can be blocked by
following the instructions on this page:
Haven't tried it myself because so far AdBlock seems to handle this easily. If you do try it I'd be interested in the result.
Firefox 1.0.3 is out -- looks like they fixed the popups
Looks like they fixed that Flash trick that the popup ad people started using fairly recently. I clicked on Drudge Report several times and didn't get any popups.
Finding FF 1.0.3 rather buggy.
AdBlock sometimes doesn't load. Can't access my company webmail address book. I may dump it and go back to 1.0.2.
AdBlock kills the popunders anyway.
I guess it's not 1.0.3 after all...
Something corrupted with my FF install. Uninstalled 1.0.3, installed 1.0.2. Did System Restore. Reinstalled AdBlock. Still no good. Ran lots of virus/spyware stuff, nothing detected.
I'm guessing there's a file or folder somewhere that needs to be deleted. More investigation today. I hate it when stuff that used to work perfectly suddenly craps out.
It IS 1.0.3 causing problems after all
Apparently FF 1.0.3 is hosing systems all over. Many posts on the Mozillazine forum about this!
You may want to hold off on this update!
ive used it since it was released
guess im lucky as not a problem
My problems have been with extensions like AdBlock and UBB Code, etc. None of them work anymore. Also I have my office webmail which uses popups for things like address books. That no longer works.
Also it takes forever to open.
I've seen a few proposed fixes that I can try but I think Mozilla needs to issue a fix since a lot of users seem to be experiencing the same thing.
I installed it yesterday before I posted
It seemed to work ok on my XP Home machine but I didn't get to use it for very long. Don't have the adblock extension installed on it.
Sounds like there might be a 1.0.4 release soon, if it's causing so much trouble.
I found one quirk with it and mentioned this in the browser forums. This extension seems to block you from following links from CNET forum messages unless you add the site to the "Allowed Sites" in the native popup blocker. The trusted sites I've added have been ok so far and those mystery popups seem to be under control.
I read that
there's a patch in beta for Firefox.
I think I'd rather wait for that....
....and just deal with it in the meantime rather than employing a "fix" that also impedes normal surfing or has unknown side effects.
Some pop ups come through, because of certain extensions
What extensions do you have installed?
