Popup Ads and Tabs
 
As mentioned elsewhere on the forum, I used the command line [code]defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniWeb5 OWOpenNewFramesInTabs -bool true[/code] to force window-opening links into tabs. Since then, however, I've been annoyed by popup ads (which are supposed to be blocked anyway) which are written to open a fixed-size, toolbar-less, scrollbar-less window. [url]http://www.boston.com[/url] has one, and [url]http://espn.go.com[/url] sometimes does as well. It forces my main browser window to a new size, and takes away the toolbars and scrollbars. Amazingly annoying, as you can imagine.

If you had read the entire thread:

[quote="troyb"]This is not a public feature yet since all the bugs haven't been worked out. For instance it bypasses the popup-trap (if you use that option) and it may have other problems.[/quote]

not a problem . i also tried the hack, and had the same problems you did, so I had to disable it (-bool false).
