for a few weeks Safari does not open links with the target "Open in new window" or with functions like pop-up about js.
The preferences "Block pop-up windows" is disabled and "enable javascript" is activated.
I deleted the safari-prefs, but no change happened.

What could it be?

    I have almost the same issue. Any javascript which is supposed to open a new window does not work. Javascript is enabled and it does not make a difference whether I enable pop-up windows or not. E.g. when I have a google map loaded and I click the print button on the page nothing happens. I have to open the same page in Camino or Firefox to print the map (which appears in a separate pop-up window). The underlying script line seems to be: Run script "void(0)"
    Anybody know what to do about this?

    I have the same problem on my iMac. It happened for me when I installed the free update to leopard (the one that came with new computers before Leopard was pre-installed). I have installed every OS and Safari update and still no fix.

    Same here, no javascript pop-ups work, even after checking preferences, disabling/removing extensions, etc.
    This is since some v3, in v2 all was fine.
