Is there a way of turning this off in meta tags or anything else in HTML? I don't want to post this again in javascript to clog up the forum but I'm open to a javascript solution as well. Thanks in advance.

You can not turn off a pop up blocker or all of those wonderful spammers would use it.

Use google and do a search for "detetc popup blockers JavaScript" and you should find solutions to notify your users they have it on.

I agree. Here's the link:
