It's a new kind of popup/popunder that evades the Firefox popup blocker (and other popup blockers). I don't know exactly how they are done, but apparently there's a way. I guess we'll see if it's possible to stop them, if so I'm sure there will be a patch any time now.
yea its getting annoying. Even when i try and load a page, it loads only the pop. Damn people need to spend their time doing better things than coding pop-ups. I wonder how much that ***hole got paid to figure it out.
i've seen those, but they don't appear that often. zonealarm takes care of most of them and only recently i've seen both of them let some through. i guess we can expect this to be solved with the 1.1 version of FF?
I've stopped most of the popups with Proxomitron... Basically it's a web proxy which one can install on their comp, set the browser to go out the loopback address of 127.0.0.1 on the port it runs on, and it will basically re-code the HTML on the fly to elliminate these popups...
Most things still still seem avoided, however it's no longer being updated... I've looked for something as good as Proxomitron for blocking, but that's still being actively developed (against nasties these advertizers might introduce) but have come up dry.
In the meantime (and unless someone has found a good and as featured alternative), it might help block some of what people are seeing...
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
