For example, if you go to the website nba-stream.com and click on a game, the website will open up a pop-up, but since I have disabled pop-ups in Google Chrome in Chrome://settings, I shouldn't get any pop-ups. clicking on a game stream on nba-stream.com also opens up a pop-up ad

but if you visit the same website in Internet Explorer, the browser will block all pop-ups whatsoever: Internet Explorer 11 blocking pop-up


clear your cookies --it should block in chrome short of 2 reasons:

1) have previously allowed cookies / pop-ups from that site OR it's domain (knowingly or otherwise)

2) it is using some other trigger like a rogue js script which is not blocked.

  • Unfortunately, even after installing the javascript popup blockers in chrome, I still get those popups on nba-stream.com – user2000624 May 10 '15 at 2:03
  • Fully clear cache aka on linux ' rm -rf ~/.config/google* ' on windows remove ' C:\Users\$USERNAME\Programs/ Files\AppData\Roaming\Google* – linuxdev2013 May 10 '15 at 2:06
  • I don't have a folder called "Google" under C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming – user2000624 May 10 '15 at 2:13
  • anything related to google or chrome? – linuxdev2013 May 10 '15 at 2:15
  • is it in this directory: C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data – user2000624 May 10 '15 at 2:20

By default google chrome should block all popups. In some cases popups can occur because of extensions (adware) or a form of DNS hijacking. Try checking out this https://productforums.google.com/forum/m/#!category-topic/chrome/eBasgnkdWds
