Pop-up Blocker not working

14 posts in this topic

I have set Settings>Privacy & Content>Pop-up Blocker as "Do not allow any site to show pop-ups (recommended)" and "Manage Exceptions" list is empty.

Yet below site opens a Pop-up window on clicking anywhere after every few seconds

https://yts.am/browse-movies

I have tested this browser with above settings at http://www.popuptest.com/ and it was successful in blocking almost all of the pop-ups (except Sticky popup and  Drop down Popup).

Do you confirm it is a bug?

Try using this filter in AdBlock: |https://$script,domain=yts.am

Did I do it right?

Screenshot has this filter:  https://$script,domain=yts.am

Although I tried with this too, didn't work:  |https://$script,domain=yts.am

No. You have to make filter in ABP, not Pop-up settings window.

Ahh.. my bad.

I have never added custom filter in ABP and don't know much about its syntax.

I did below which didn't work, still not sure if this is correct.

Meanwhile I have also reported this to ABP's Easylist forum. Hope they will fix this in proper way.

Can you show logs from AdBlock? it looks like that for me and I do not have a pop-up window.

And check that you have selected "Block pop-ups for this website"

It shows similar entries in log but I am still getting pop-up windows

EDIT: I just saw your another screenshot for selecting "Block pop-ups for this website" which you added by editing your post. I am trying to click on that option but nothing happens. That option remains unselected no matter how many times I click on it. Another bug?

Also something weird is happening with this forum. I suddenly cannot post new replies or quote on this thread. I can just edit my previous replies. Somebody removed my posting access?

I think I know what is responsible for it. The following script:

The buzzadnetwork.com/a/display.php is responsible for pop ups (description). So try to block it by adding: ##div.row.hidden-xs.hidden-sm

That site is full of RansomWare.  Be careful.

Looks like I can post now. Don't know what happened.

Anyways.. any idea about why I can't select "Block pop-ups for this website"?

Probably because you have set "Allow all sites to show pop-ups" in the "Privacy & Content" settings. I have "Do not allow any site to show pop-ups" set.

That made it selectable.

Tried adding ##div.row.hidden-xs.hidden-sm in ABP filter. Popups are still there and it is blocking the screenshots on that page.
