Disable Pop-up windows

  • Hi, I have checked "Do not allow any site to show pop-ups (recommended)", but pop-up windows are opening anyway.

    Is there an extension or something to fix this?
    *rant* its really annoying not having Opera 12 pop-up blocking system. *rant-off*

  • Depending on how those pop-ups are triggered, they will show up even on Opera Presto.

    A few examples of pages where the problem is happening would help people testing it.

  • Hi!
    Sorry, i was not suscribed to this thread xD

    A link, for example, opens this "Vube" popup.

    http://www.animeid.tv/letras/e when selecting an anime

    Edit: Tested on Opera 12, and after selecting "Block all pop-ups" it wont open a thing even if you clicked an add.

  • I get no pop-ups on that site, Opera 12.16, and I've only got it set to "Block unwanted pop-ups". Are you sure it's not just a flash ad or something that obscures the content?

  • That could be because those pop up are region based ads, I will try to find more sites that opens unwanted pop up (excluding adult sites or software pirating sites which are a good example to this problem)

    really - pop-up window?
    my Opera never ever has opened a pop-up window (except when opening a stored session)

  • No I get them on sites like The Pirate Bay when clicking a download link, for example. Since I have "unwanted" pop-ups blocked only, when I click a link, a pop-up can simultaneously appear.
