Re: [SLUG] Stopping pop ups


I read somewhere that aol disabled the command to stop popups as
this was the mainstay of their business. So the best bet is to keep
using mozilla. it's under edit -> preferences -> Advanced -> scripts
This is the same under netscape but it doesn't work.

It works well. The only problem is when you go to a bank site you
have to re-enable it if you want Internet banking.
