popup on exit question

My client wants me to make a popup on exit window with a discount
coupon. I have found how to do this if someone exits the site or
closes their browser window, but I can't find a way to prevent the
popup from coming up if someone clicks the refresh or back button on
their browser. Does anyone have a workaround for this problem?

Your client is an idiot.

Nah, you just think you have.
but I can't find a way to prevent the

Stop using un-solicited popups, problem solved. Put a link on the page
to the coupon page. If people want it, they will go.
Does anyone have a workaround for this problem?


You can't open a popup on my computer when I leave the site.
Thats not a problem to be solved.

So where's the problem?
