    Yes it is... what really irritates me is you can't open EoFF windows in the background... I usually have 5-6 windows open and everytime it changes page, it pulls it back to the front...

    One tip, if this isn't resolved... is to keep the ad window open... it'll keep opening the ads in the same window so it won't keep popping up

    I already did that tip, but it seems it's not working. New windows keep popping up. I guess I was wrong about "It's not as bad as it used to be."

    Ah well. There's nothing I can do about it, except enabling the pop-up stopper.

    They're back? I haven't noticed anything popping up (or under) lately.

    I use a program called adsubtract http://www.adsubtract.com/ It can block EVERYTHING. Pop-ups, ads, cookies, Java, animations, music, etc. And for you slow connect people, having the filters on will boost your speed a bit.

    They're back with sound effects now. Twice as annoying as ever before. Squally's pop-up killer worked a treat, I tried it the other day. Very handy.
    If you don't know who I am you were clearly of single digit age when I stopped posting on this forum.

    I'm old skool.

    ..and FF8 is clearly still the best.

    Pop-ups with sound effects are the straw that broke the camel's back. *downloads program* Though the most annoying thing is when the stupid things take the focus away from this window when I'm in the middle of typing a reply. *shakes his head*

    Hehe, I've had that program for a year now and it has never failed its job.

    Oh yeah, BlkKnight, I downloaded that program of yours and tested it. I deleted some cookies and stuff (which freed up 35 MB, w00t!). However, it doesn't block pop-ups. Too bad, yeah, or else I'd have kept the program.

    I'll rather stick with my current pop-up stopper.

    Hmm, I still get no pop-ups at this site, I have no pop-up stoppers of any sort (yet) and tried with both IE and Opera - maybe I'm lucky

    But I think I'll odwnload that program anyway, it would be useful for other sites I visit

    Please excuse the bumping of this thread, but I'd rather it didn't get deleted after three months of not having posts. >=P The Pop-Ups are back, and so this thread shall now be revived. Rawk out.

    I downloaded Skwally's opo up thingy, and it stopped ANY IE windows opening at all!! I dun want it that badly!

    I will do this. Nothing in my life matters except this. No moment in my life exists except this moment. I am born in this moment, and if I fail, I will die in this moment.

    Yeah, but you can just turn it off when it gets annoying. *nod*

    Apparently, turning off the scripting in the IE options will stop the pop-ups coming up but it will stop other stuff as well... the fora will still work fine but toher things won't methinks...
