I have a MacBook Air, OS X, using Safari. I have been away from Macs for 10 years and just bought the laptop, so trying to reintroduce myself. I can't find where to turn off the pop up blocker for certain...


Block pop-ups on webpages


  1. Open Safari if it is not already open.
  2. Choose Safari > Preferences, and then click Security.
  3. Turn on "Block pop-up windows."


Blocking pop-up windows stops only those windows that appear when you open or close a page. It does not block pop-up windows that open when you click a link.

If you block pop-up windows, you might miss important information for a webpage. For example, a website that provides services to you might use a pop-up window to request your user name.

Block unnecessary webpage content


  1. Open Safari if it is not already open.
  2. Choose Safari > Preferences, and then click Security.
  3. In the "Web content" section, select or deselect types of content you want to block or enable. For an explanation of the options, click the Help button (looks like a question mark).

Turn off pop up blocker


Turn Off Pop-Up Blockers on My Computer
Surfing the Internet and constantly being bombarded with pop-up ads can be extremely annoying. For this reason, most computer users enable a pop-up blocker.
Occasionally, however, you run across a website that offers information that you need and it is blocked by the pop-up blocker.
When this happens you need to disable the pop-up blocker. You can disable the pop-up blocker for all websites or just for specific ones.

Launch Internet Explorer.
Click on the "Tools" drop-down menu.

Scroll down, click "Pop-up Blocker" and choose "Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker."
Turn off pop-ups for specific sites by completing steps 1 and 2.
Then, instead of choosing to turn off pop-ups, choose "Pop-Up Blocker Settings."
Add sites to block or remove sites from the list that are being blocked.
Turn Off Pop-Ups Blocker in Toolbars
Even though you may have your pop-ups turned off in Internet Explorer, if you have a toolbar installed on your computer it can still block pop-ups.
The most commonly installed toolbars are the Yahoo toolbar and Google toolbar.
Click on the drop-down menu next to the pop-up blocker button to disable the pop-up blocker in the Yahoo toolbar. Select "Disable pop-up blocker."
Click the "Options" button on the Google toolbar. In "Accessories," clear the box next to the pop-up blocker option.

Advanced options Internet Explorer provides advanced configuration options through Pop-up Blocker Settings. To access these settings, open Internet Options, click Privacy and then in the Pop-up Blocker area click Settings to open Pop-up Blocker Settings. You can configure the following options:
  • Address of Web site to allow. Enter a URL and click Add to add sites to the Allowed sites list. Any site on the list can open pop-up windows.

  • Filter Level. There are three different filter levels that you can use with Pop-up Blocker:

    • High: Block All Pop-ups. The default behavior of Pop-up Blocker allows sites to open a pop-up window when the user clicks a link. This setting changes that behavior by blocking windows that are opened from a link. If this setting is enabled, you can allow pop-up windows to open by pressing the CTRL key at the same time that you click the link to launch the pop-up.

    • Medium: Block most automatic pop-ups. This is the default Pop-up Blocker setting. This setting blocks most pop-ups that launch automatically when a Web site is loaded into your browser, but doesn't block pop-ups that are opened when you click a link.

    • Low: Allow pop-ups from secure sites. This setting allows secure Web sites (those that use the https:// protocol) to automatically launch pop-up windows without requiring that you add them to the Allowed sites list.

How do I change my pop up settings?


Given below are steps to pop up settings: Step 1 If you are in Microsoft Windows explorer and wish to disable your Pop-Up Blocker, then you will need to click on Tools at the top of the screen, scroll down and click on Pop-Up Blocker and then click to Turn off Pop-Up Blocker.
  • Step 2 In Mozilla or FireFox, the Pop-Up Blocker is within the browser. First you will need to go to your Tools menu and click on Options. From there, click on Web Features and then remove the check from the block that says "Block Popup Windows". Once you have done that and click OK, then you should be ready to view your site with Pop-Ups enabled.
  • Step 3 In the Safari Browser you can change your Pop-Up settings by going to the menu and selecting the Preferences options. Once you have done this, you can then select the Security options. Remove the check-mark from Block Pop-Up Windows and you are done.
  • Step 4 In Netscape you will access your Pop-Up Blocker from the Edit menu. Select Edit, then select Preferences. Next, click beside the Privacy and Security option and you will then see the Pop-Up Windows option.
    You can then change the settings as you would like.
  • Step 5 The Google Toolbar also has an icon across the top showing pop-ups that have been blocked. If you are unsure which icon to click on, hover over them first and your browser will reveal what the icon is for without you having to click on it. Clicking on the pop-up icon does allow you to change this setting in the google toolbar.
  • Step 6 jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep6 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/rt/4a/change-pop-up-blocker-settings-1.6-800X800.jpg'); }); The Yahoomag-glass_10x10.gif Tool bar will show an icon that needs to be clicked on from the Tool Bar as well. This Icon will look like the one to the side. Click on this icon and you will be able to uncheck the " Enable Pop-Up Blocker" verbiage.
  • Step 7 If you are using AOL, then the tool bar will show the word "Blocked" on it. This is in regards to the pop-ups and will showcase the total number of pop-ups blocked thus far. To change this setting to allow pop-ups, click on it and it will switch from blocking them to allowing them through.
  • Step 8 Virus Protection Software that you have enabled on your computer may also have Pop-Up Blockers within it. You may have to pull up your Menu Page of your Software, usually accessible through your desktop, and allow your pop-ups through your Virus/Spyware Protection.
