Popups still appear despite blocking

more options

Hi,

Some websites still managed to smuggle in popups despite all the blockings. I use as add-ons: privacy badger, no-script, ublock origin and recently tried popup blocker (strict) and even have the 'block pop-up windows' enabled. I also tried to fiddle around in ´about:config´ but nothing helps. I think it's a recent occurrence as I don't remember having this problem, let's say, a couple of months ago.

The funny thing is that this problem doesn't occur in opera-browser (in which I hardly use extensions).

The websites that this occurs are: arabicpost.net (a pop-up will occur about 10 sec after right-clicking a new tab). focus.de (a video pop-up will occur if there's a video in it). Again opera-browser blocks all of this. I expect there will be other websites to add in the future.

Please help. S.O.S. -> g.o.i.n.g..i.n.s.a.n.e!

Those are sticky elements rather than traditional popup windows. The one on *focus.de* can be avoided by installing uBlock Origin and enabling the Annoyances filters. A more general solution is to use an extension like PopUpOFF which works on *arabicpost.net* when set to Moderate.
