Default Google toolbar

I use the latest edition of Google toolbar to block popups. Everytime I go to though, I get a major popup (actually, its more of a dragdown from the top of the page) that slows down and actually covers the main story before pulling back. Its really annoying and slow.

Any ideas on how to stop it?

that's not a popup, it's a pop-in, and since it's part of a programming language, very few programs will be able to stop it. Bad news.

The best browser Netscape 8
Have you accidently delete something? Look here (trial. the better one) and here(free)
