    you can change the popup blocker to not allow any popups if you add these 2 lines in the Registry

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\New Windows

    add DWORD 32bit value on both

    BlockControls 1

    BlockUserInit 1

    I no longer have any popups
