Even though I have block pop-up windows checked in in the Safari menu, I am finding that this blocking feature is not reliable. One of the pop-up windows I see frequently is for Netflix. This is not the only one.

Does anyone know of a method to really inhibit the pop-up windows in addition to what I am doing?

I'm running the latest OS (10.5.4)

Thanks for any help.

    It's not possible to block all popups, since some are activated by Flash instead of JavaScript, so unless you remove the Flash plugin or have some way of disabling it, you will always see an occasional popup window, depending on which kinds of sites your visit.

    that's just the nature of the beast.
