Well, a window being opened in response to a user click (perhaps
many pop-up blockers will refuse to allow new windows to open at all,
or at least, have the option to prevent that.
from doing certain functions, included among them is "open new windows".
I think that feature would prevent both "true" pop-ups and all other
ones to which I was referring.
Mary Winter reports using Pop-up Stopper on one Windows machine and
AdSubtract on another Windows machine, both in conjunction with IE.
She is having the same headache I described in #1975 on both machines,
having no remote and no navigation on-page. The only solution is to
quit IE entirely and start over.
