i think i may have solved my issue with sfari wantingto constanty pop up.

needed to activate macafee webadvisor.
so far now behaving like a good browser should .
here are the steps i leared and i thought id share these with others who are having the same issue .
Click the McAfee menulet in the menu bar (at the top of the screen near the clock) and select McAfee LiveSafe - Internet Security Console.
Click the Gear (settings) icon at the top right of McAfee console.
Click McAfee WebAdvisor:
Click the lock and type your administrator password if prompted.
Click the toggle to disable WebAdvisor:
Close the WebAdvisor window.
Open Safari, then click Safari, Preferences.
Click the Extensions tab.
Enable the McAfee WebAdvisor extension. This step allows Internet Security for Mac to correctly manage the extension:
Close the Extensions window

I would not have thought of that, nor have found it, in a million years.

I don't use McAfee, obviously.

As for your other post, on removing Safari on ios, you couldn't do that on older versions of ios, like my Ipad ONE, that stopped getting updates around version five-something.

Still great for reading books and piano scores, which is why I got it in the first place.

Glad you found what you were looking for!
