controlling pop-up placement

As someone who has a web site, there is this popup (not my own) that comes
up that I can't make go away when others view the page. Is there anyway,
at least, to make sure that the parent window supersedes and is the top
lawyer vs. this smaller pop-up using javascript?

i'm a js novice, but i think what you're looking for is a pop-under script.

This is sort of what I am thinking about but the key difference is that I am
not creating a popup-- a popup has been placed on my site somehow. In
other words, I am not the creator of the popup I want to control. Is there
anyway of programmaticall y either removing it or pushing it behind my parent
page?

Two possibilities here:

-There is a ostile program runing in the background on your machine that
is generating the popup in response to certain keywords on teh page. The
solution is to use AdAware or something similar on them.

-You are using a free web space provider which includes popup adverts as
part of the terms of service. The solution is to not be so cheap.

Is it one of these?

I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out the details of controlling Python compiling. I can compile and embed just fine, but I want some finer granularity on what gets compiled into Python. I can find little to no documentation of the compiler flags besides the ones essential to operating system compatibility. How does one choose what built-in modules are compiled into Python? I ask because newer versions are accumulating more and...

Howdy Folks, I was just playing around in IDLE at the interactive prompt and typed in dir({}) for the fun of it. I was quite surprised to see a pop method defined there. I mean is that a misnomer or what? From the literature, pop is supposed to be an operation defined for a stack data structure. A stack is defined to be an "ordered" list data structure. Dictionaries in Python have no order but are sequences. Now, does anyone know...

As said before I'm new to programming, and I need in depth explaination to understand everything the way I want to know it, call it a personality quirk ;p. With pop() you remove the last element of a list and return its value: Now I know list is a bad name, but for the sake of arguement lets assume its not a built in sequence> 'example'

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
