Hi Charles,
If you go to Tools >> Options >> Content, make sure that "Block Popups" have been selected. This should block any popup that you receive.
Thanks, and hope this helps!

http://www.optmd.com/ has an opt out page. I suspect that if your ISP uses dynamic ipaddressing you will have to continually opt out every so many months.

I think 'whatever floats your boat'. If downloading some free files off the Internet and having a toke of the piece pipe makes you happy then go for it mate.

http://www.optmd.com/ choose the "opt out" tab, click on the opt out button. done.

Optmd.com is the company that "pushes" ads like netflix. By doing this simple job you dont ever have to mess with account settings, trying different browsers, or bying special software.

I went to both sites and there were no popups possibly because adblock plus eliminated them. Try adblock plus:

I just have the usa easy list checked for my subscription. Ads were yesterday!

The issue has NOTHING TO DO with POP-UPS!!! POP-UP BLOCKING has NO EFFECT on this situation. You should KNOW what is being asked before offering a suggestion to 'help'.

This is a POP-UNDER, and I know of NOTHING to stop a POP-UNDER, short of turning off FLASH.

Oh, forgot to mention that it is the site administrator, not, say... Net Flix,,, that determines the use of the POP-UNDER. If you say, "I have never had this happen.", it is only because you have not visited a site that uses POP-UNDERS, and/or because you do not have FLASH ENABLED.

I get no popups nor pop-unders at the netflix site and have flash enabled. I may have a pop-under issue at another site that just reared its ugly head after my last post in this thread and your post is duely noted.

You're an idiot for not understanding a simple question.

These pop-unders are not *at* the Netflix site... they are littered about other sites. According to optMD (the ad company responsible) notes on their website, they use cookies to limit your computer to one pop-under per-day (I've never personally kept track... but, sound's about right - one is still irritating.) as said previously, they have a way to "opt-out" on their website. Of course, this would still utilize cookies.. which run out (or are sometimes deleted by a user) and, not necessarily the fix you're looking for.

As stated by Michel, these are indeed... not Pop-Ups. optMD, I'm sure, takes great pains to make that distinction. To me, they are only slightly less irritating than a pop up - or those floating rollover Flash ads that are all the rage.

That being said, if you use Firefox, Adblock Plus might be a good bet.

Go to www.OptMD.com and that is the site the company who posts Netflix popunders comes from. It can be good for 5 years

Most ISP's use dynamic IPaddressing. That means that you get assigned a new IPaddress every so often. So going to optmd.com/optout.html and adding http://as.casalemedia.com to your restricted sites will only be a temporary fix.

POP-UP BLOCKING WILL NOT STOP THE NETFLIX "POP-UP" ADS to which the original poster refers. As OptMD and other commenters have pointed out, these are "Pop-Under" ads, which is a ridiculous misnomer, because they do -- in fact -- appear in front of the browser window I'm viewing when they're served.

However, I have been to the OptMD website, and I have hit the "Opt-Out" button, and I have confirmed that Firefox is allowing cookies AND that there is am optmd.com folder in my cookies database, and yet I am still getting the ads.

Users who choose to opt out must have cookies enabled on their Internet browsers. If you clear your cookies, the opt out will be deleted and you will need to opt out again. Cookies are the only means by which Optimax chooses to control ad delivery.
