annoying pop up

Postby flyingveepixie » Sat Nov 25, 2017 9:59 am

Every time I open a new page in Safari I get an annoying pop up from ABP asking me if I want to 'hide targeted messages' and I either have to click on an OK or a Cancel button. Why is this happening and how can I get rid of it..?

the pop-up that asks me to allow or to pay is waaay more annoying than the ads were. so i attempted to unistall the extension. BUT IT STILL POPS UP EVERY TIME I OPEN ANY PAGE! so how the hell can i make this thing go away forever, short of reformatting my hard drive?

"malware" that exactly copies your adblock announcement, AFTER i have UNinstalled the app?
this is exactly what i'm still getting:

1 page viewed, but no ads in sight…
Please allow ads to display for (site name here), and help us keep our (site here) free.
ALLOW ADS ON (site name here)

I had the same problem but after uninstalling extensions from my Safari stupid annoying pop-ups disappear. Thanks for suggestions.
