Same here!

Safari no longer stops pop-up windows... solutions anyone? (Besides not using safari)

Try choosing Reset Safari from the menubar under Safari. Reset and settings including the popup blocker, and then see how it goes.

Some pop-ups are really sneaky. They won't appear until you click somewhere on the page, then they pop up, so they're not technically a pop up and can't be blocked without the browser blocking pages you open manually.

Not much Safari can do about it I think.

Use trusted site via Safari and use Camino browser for other activities specially when you search the web... This block flash as well

Possibly the best browser for the mac.
