  • From time to time (about once per session), a new foreground tab pops up for China Eastern Airlines' website ( While I have flown with CEA, I have certainly never given them permission for this, and I do not have any account with them.

    This started happening recently, some time after I upgraded to Version 64.0.3417.92. I looked through settings but cannot find any way to block this.

    Can anyone tell me what the problem is, and how I can fix it?


  • @hdhondt The problem happens with all extensions disabled?

    The problem happens with no tabs opened?

    Does it happens no matter what sites you visit?

  • Apart from Opera's ad blocker I only use one extension (a video downloader). I' disable it and see.

    I always start with a number of tabs open, but it happens regardless of which sites I visit. But, as I said, it's not regular. It happens most but not all sessions, and when it does happen, it's usually in the middle of a session, when I'm looking at something entirely unrelated.

  • @hdhondt Did you check your system for malware?

  • Both ZoneAlarm and Malwarebytes are installed and run regular scans. No malware has been found for the last several months.

  • Well, it's been a week since I disabled Video Downloader Pro and China Eastern hasn't popped up again. I'll re-enable it to see if it's a coincidence. I hope it is as VDP is my favourite video downloader.

  • Another week, and still no pop-up from CEA. VDP is enabled, and I've had no problems.

    I'll file it in the mystery box. If it occurs again, I'll try to note what I did just before it happens. Thanks to those people who gave suggestions.
