A fix for some full page pop-unders in Safari Apps
Many are complaining about the recent occurrence of blank, full page windows popping up under the active window in Safari versions 5 and 7 (not sure about version 6) when clicking on a link.

This is due to the Glims update that came out this week. To solve this annoying behavior:

Go to Safari Prefs»Glims»Ads/Shopping, and check Off. Mine was set to Hit Me, which is the default. I don't remember seeing this behavior in Glims before.

[crarko adds: Hi, all; it's your guest editor, Craig Arko, in for a week. I don't use Glims, so I haven't tried this out. It seems plausible, but if people still observe the issue and this isn't the fix please make a comment.]

He's right. Default was set for everything.

I confirm the apparent cause and the fix. I was having the same annoying blank tabs opening after installing the latest Glims update, went hunting and found the sponsored ads turned on by default. After clicking the Off radio button, I haven't had any more blank tabs opening by themselves.

This is new behavior in Glims. Many have complained on Macupdate.com, where the developer has been busy defending himself.
