Hi Jackie
I have my web browser set to block pop-ups as they can be a nuisance with jaws.
I found the following definition of pop-ups on the net which I thought
might be helpful:
Pop-up ads or popups are a form of online advertising on the
World Wide Web
intended to increase
web traffic
or capture email addresses. It works when certain web sites open a new
web browser
window to display
. The pop-up window containing an advertisement is usually generated by
, but can be generated by other means as well.

A variation on the pop-up window is the pop-under advertisement, which
opens a new browser window hidden under the active window. Pop-unders
do not interrupt
the user immediately and are not seen until the covering window is
closed, making it more difficult to determine which web site opened
them. Pop-unders
can be extremely annoying for people who are used to leaving several
tabs prepared for another session, as unnoticed pop-unders will be
considered by the
browser as the last open window. This will cause the browser to open
the ad at the next start, instead of the prepared tabs.
