Konqueror pop-ups

Postby kashikis » Tue Jan 10, 2006 11:51 am

Hopefully one of my fellow geeks can help me with this. About a month or so ago I switched from using enlightenment to KDE and now I web surf using Konqueror 3.4.1 because it is faster the Firefox.

The only problem is this site. For some reason Konqi won't block pop-ups from this site. Every other site has been fine but I get a pop-up for every post I look at or every sub-forum I enter. Needless to say 10-12 can pile up very quickly.

Technically I think they are pop-unders though as they show up under my browser but it's obnoxious nonetheless. So how do I fix this? I've done some google searches but nothing came up helpful. If anything they were disheartening.

Is there a way to tweak the pop-up blocker to block these?
or
Is there an extension I can load into Konqueror to help this?

Thanks guys

i've had this problem...but only with internet explorer. and only on my girlfriends computer. I don't know what the deal is, but it makes navigation of this site completely impossible. There have been others with this problem. I think menyak has talked to them about it in faq or site suggestions. Seems like he said they got that problem fixed...but it still happened to me on the other computer. Anyway, I'll link to the thread when I find it.

here's one

I seem to remember seeing in another thread that people thought they were having a problem with the Cafe, but it turned out to be Adware on their machine. Have you ran an adware killer to see if you were infected?

Kashikis, you're using Linux? That would explode my theory, then.

You are correct moonhead.

I'm running KDE on a gentoo linux OS.

Is anyone else running linux or Konqi to browse??
