    Is there such a thing as a pop up blocker THAT ACTUALLY REALLY WORKS ?

    I do not want one that blocks this or that pop up, but all of them. F.e. streaming sites have the habit of flooding users with advertising pop ups without end...

    Anyone know a solution for that?

    Thanks

    AdblockPlus just works well as long as the Browser is running in normal mode, If the browser run 'incognito' AdblockPlus stops working! And so will the majority (if not all) of Adblock Apps! AFAIK, there isn't any way to block Ad's totally!

    In order to make the pop-up windows, can be used for a very wide variety of methods. It mean, that there is no "single drug" which treats all diseases.The only way not to see them, don't use such a sites, which ruins the health.

    Mr. Magic said the golden words. It really works.

    Do you really want to block ALL pop-ups? Some are useful, give warnings or notifications (e.g. “You have new mail”). Some logins to sites or boards are by means of pop-ups. And what about the pop-up that asks “Do you really want to leave this site?” If you don’t see that to answer yes, you can’t leave the site.

    Just to add to my last post: NOT ask for the sites name/link, that's are privates sites and I'm not allowed to publicise the URL's!

    I find the salaries of soccer player pornographic myself, but I still want to watch. Shame on me.
    BTW. Whenever I watch porn the pop ups are blocked and left behind the window that is actually used.

    First of all, You really think I am too stupid to know adblock. Also I was not talking about ads, I was talking about POP-UPS!
    I will try slimjet, and let you know if it works for me.
    It is a real nuisance, I have bookmarked eight sports streaming sites and all but one is unusable….

    Thanks, at least someone who understood the question…
    I find the obsession with porn amazing here. OF course only that of others… what a bunch of hypocrites…

    Ich bin Hundefreund und so bin ich in der Lage einen Computer auch ohne pop ups zu nutzen. Ich kann sehr guit damit leben, zweimal am Tag zu checken was ich für mails habe, ich besitze weder smartphone, noch twitter, noch facebook. Im Gegensatz zu all den ungeheuer wichtigen Menschen, die für die Welt unbedingt 24/7 erreichbar sein müssen, bin ich völlig unwichtig. Ich bin damit beschäftigt MEIN Leben zu leben.

    Thank you… just to make sure: Unlike the others, you have seen that I am not talking about an adblocker, but a pop up blocker?
    I remember installing uBlock a few months ago, but as it was even less efficient than adblock, I changed back…

    I owe you an apology. I am slowly coming to grips with the browser, and use both, at least for now.

    I received a few PM's from the OP in Messenger for further help!

    Seems to be that some people didn't like to understand what a Public Forum is all about!

    To tell it in simple words, a Public Forum is to help others!! And that didn't means, that such help is limited to that human who's asking for the help, it's also for those who didn't ask, just maybe have the same or similarly problems. A Public Forum isn't made for Private Lessons and/or Help!

    This wasn't the first time I got such Requests' from other members! Just, lately, it summarize quite a bit, and from now, such Request's will be deleted without any answer in PM, Messenger and even forum. Any accusing PM/Message will be reported to Admin from now on.

    Regards.

    If you know how to use your hosts file you can block pretty much anything with precision. No popup blocker needed.
