Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

How can we block the pop-under windows?  My browser is Comodo Dragon and I already blocked the pop-ups by selecting:

 - Settings
 - Under the Hood
Under Privacy:
 - Content settings
Under Pop-ups:
 - Do not allow any site to show pop-ups

but I still get some pop-ups and a lot of pop-unders.

Thanks in advance,
:)

I'm not a gentleman but I think I found the solution to block pop-up windows:

On the Internet Explorer (10) browser, select:
 - Tools (Alt+X)
- Internet Options
-Under the tab: Privacy
Click on: Turn on Pop-up Block

and it blocks all pop-up windows. 
Other browsers may be set up differently, but at least it works with Internet Explorer. 
I opened a webpage with the browser Comodo Dragon and got the pop-up window. 
I opened the exact same webpage with Internet Explorer and it blocked the pop-up window.

:)

I surf with Fire Fox because Internet Explorer is even worse with pop under windows.

A. Try Pale Moon.  It is a Fire Fox browser without some of the problems of Fire Fox.  Fire Fox has a problem with blocking some pop ups.   Pale Moon does a much better job and will handle all the FF add ons.   

B.  Install You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login on your FF.

IE, you can turn on pop up blocker but IE tends to be inefficient in most of the stuff it does and as hole filled as a stack of swiss cheese a mouse has gotten into.  It is not a very secure browser.  Use at your own risk.  It's a bit dated with all the other browsers out there which are faster and more secure.

How Do I Block Pop-Under Windows in Google Chrome?
« Reply #6 on: June 08, 2013, 08:13 PM »
My browser is now Google Chrome (RockMelt is no longer offering a downloadable browser, the last I heard) and I was wondering:
does anyone know how we can block pop-under windows, preferably without adding an add-on, please? 

I added an add-on with Internet Explorer, once, and my poor little computer has never been the same (but, then, it was Internet Explorer and nothing surprises me with those guys! :D)  My computer started freezing and it got so bad I had to restore it to an 'out-of-the-box' state.   It may have been just a coincidence but I ain't taking any chances. ;D

When there have been times I was able to successfully block certain activity (such as ads) on a website, it usually blocked other parts of the page as well. :P :laugh:

If setting chrome to no pop ups doesn't get rid of pop unders then you need to download an add on.

Add ons in Chrome are very different than add ons in IE because IE refuses to share code with the people building the add on.  They are stumbling around blind trying to create something.  Chrome shares code so they know what they are doing.

Don't assume the experience of one browser will be like another.  ;)

How to block pop-under and pop-up ads

Like I said: ..."It may have been just a coincidence..."

But good news: thanks to FireWings and Ninjumper, specifically at: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  we can block pop-unders and pop-ups by installing AdBlock Plus (if your browser is Google Chrome.)  I have it now and my computer is still working fine. :dance:
