Why am I getting pop-ups even though I have "Block pop-up windows" checked under content?

Posted

This just started in the last week. I have not had this problem before and I went back into the Options settings to make sure the box was checked.

And you are using Yahoo Mail thru Firefox?

Do all those popup windows show that =us.mg4.mail.yahoo.com at the end of the URL, or something similar?

If so, I can't only guess that Yahoo Mail is getting around the popup blocker.
