Just wondering what I need to install in Safari that will stop that stupid errin grant's blog fatso thing from popping up everytime I visit MacDailyNews - Apple and Mac News - Welcome Home (http://www.macdailynews.com)

When Safari 4.0.4 was first released it blocked the pop up. After one day they worked out how to bypass Safari's popup blocker and now the stupid thing is back to annoy me.

I don't see any popups or mentions of a blog. I'm also running Safari 4.0.4 with popups blocked.

Did you click on one of their stories/articles?

I'm with HGHG.

EDIT:

This is the kind of information you should be including in the original post. Now I have, yes - there are popups and no I don't know how to remove them. Maybe use their RSS feed rather than the page?

Yep. Still no popups. I tried clicking around a bunch of links and nothing came up (apart from obnoxious banner ads, seriously, whoever designed that site seems to have tried their best to make it look like a link farm as closely as possible).

EditL: I dunno what you did Exo, but I'm popup free!

I tried it here, no pop ups at all either. For the record I'm running Glimmer Blocker to block advertising and ClickToFlash to stop Flash from auto-loading.

Thanks Jaffa. Glimmer blocker seems to have done the trick.

No probs leon. Just make sure you're running the latest GlimmerBlocker build, there was one a couple of builds back that used up a lot of processor power for some reason, but they seem to have fixed that now.
