    You're mistaken. If you don't get popups in Safari 3.x, then you won't get them in Safari 4.x as long as the preferences are the same. So instead of casting aspersions about something you're not familiar with at all, maybe you should try looking at what you're doing wrong and providing some specific detail.

    With Safari open, from the Menu Bar, select Safari/Block Pop Up Windows.

    I have experienced the same problem. "Block Pop-up Windows" is checked, and as far as I can tell, my preferences are the same as before the upgrade to 4.0.2, the point at which the pop-ups started appearing. Any insights would be appreciated.

    You can't run Safari 4 on 10.4.9, you have to update to 10.4.11 as well as installing security updates 2009-001 and 002.

    If you have simply forgotten to update your details, which does not help us to help you, please start your own thread.

    Hate to disappoint you people telling the poster and others that the Pop-up Blocker mechanism does in fact work - and leading them via instruction to the location in the App Prefs to Enbale or Disable the option.

    It has repeatedly stopped working various website. I'm running 10.5.7 Leopard. And using Safari 4.0 4.0.1 and 4.0.2.

    IMDB.com is a good example.

    I had severa pop-up ads show up when I went out to NBC.com and CBS.com looking at the upcoming series for thye fall.

    It is happening. And this started before the 4.x upgrade. Web Developers are starting to use other means to force pop-up advertising. Mozilla is managing to keep up with the changing code but for some reason it seems that Apple felt it was enough of an issue to bother with when they changed version numbers.
