My iMac runs High Sierra, and I use Safari. Both are fully updated.

This week, I am presented with recurring popups advertising Amazon Prime Day. I have cleared Safari's caches and cookies for all sites Amazon and Prime. "Block popups" is checked in Safari > Preferences > Privacy > Manage Website Data. Safari also runs the Safari extension Wipr, which is likewise up to date. Quits-and-restarts, both of the OS and Safari, are unavailing.

While the popups are easily dismissed, they're annoying. Other than these, I don't see popups or ads.

Have any of you ideas how I might successfully block them, or find their source?

    True, but I might learn something in the meantime. – DavidSupportsMonica Jul 18 '18 at 1:10

    Do you have an ad blocker? Can you post the code from the pop up? – JBis Jul 18 '18 at 1:11
  • @JBis, yes Wipr is running on Safari. I don't know how to see the code from the popup. How do I do that? – DavidSupportsMonica Jul 18 '18 at 1:13
  • Are these "Page Source" or "Page Resources" from the Develop menu? – DavidSupportsMonica Jul 18 '18 at 1:17

Try this:

  1. Download & Install AdBlock

  2. Right click on the popup and select "Block This Ad" enter image description here

  3. Drag the slider until the popup is gone

  4. Click "Looks Good" enter image description here
