SP10: Pop-up blocking broken? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
2 examples of pages leading to a pop-up window:

It doesn't happen all the times. Maybe once a day ?
I have pop-ups completely disabled (usually I just go with not requested) and when I hit pages like geocities. BAM! A blank page pops up. Very annoying. I forget what site I was at last night but I was getting full screen pop-ups, resizing popups, etc. All of them BLANK. So it seems that the pop up blocking is sort of working (pages don't come up but windows still appear).
...and should not be here...

But I seem to be having issues with posting on bulletin boards from time to time. My own blog, for instance, which contains a reference to the port because I have to circumvent standard ports - provider issue - the URL becomes muddled and the port appears twice:

...and of course, it doesn't work well.

The other thing to note (probably the SAME issue) is when I update/add a note, hit the submit button, the update works but the window never updates/closes like it is supposed to do.

I'd guess that the ad blocker is blocking the popup's content even though the popup blocker isn't stopping the window from being created.
I use Privoxy, and forget that it is even in there, so anything OW is or is not doing, would also behave differently with different system. Plus, I block and edit a lot of stuff at the router which keeps those pests from being loaded.

Never seen a blank window or any type of pop-up, thankfully!
A different popup experience for me this morning: While again the window that opened was blank, the address field was not empty. Page was
Popup was
Nothing happens to me on that page (and I regularly visit NewScientist).

Must be privoxy or something else - or it was a 'fluke.'
I'm seeing the same behavior (SP10). The pop-up windows are not being blocked, but their content is. That is, the pop-up window is blank; it's just a gray background.

If you want to test pop-up blocking, here's a good site:
We just released SP11 which should help with this...
With SP11 I've set popup blocking to block unrequested windows. I have a bugmenot bookmarklet in the fav bookmarks bar. I would assum that clicking it would work - but it is blocked.
