Safari 6/7 (Mavericks): Block pop-ups and unnecessary content

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

Prevent webpages from displaying pop-up windows or loading time-consuming content that may be unnecessary. However, blocking pop-ups and unnecessary content might also block content or features, such as animation, that use the same technology.

  1. Choose Safari > Preferences, then click Security.
  2. In the “Web content” and “Internet plug-ins” sections, select “Block pop-up windows,” then deselect Enable JavaScript, Allow plug-ins, or both.
