Pop-ups in Microsoft Edge

Hi there!

So, I´ve been using Microsoft Edge for about a month now, and I think it is awesome! Still, I have an ongoing problem with pop-ups. Even though I´ve set things up to block pop-ups, some sites still manage to open another tab, even though Edge quickly closes it. The problem is that when Edge closes the pop-up, it freezes a bit, and goes slow untill I close all tabs and open another one. Also, when the pop up is blocked, Edge sents a notification that goes on the bottom part of the screen like "Microsoft Edge blocked a pop-up, would you like to enable once, enable always" sort of thing and I would really like to disable it, because I don´t ever want pop-ups enabled in the first place!

Can you guys help me? Sorry for the clumsy english, not my native language :/

Anyway, thanks in advance!
