Internet Explorer doesn't block any pop ups

In the preferences for IE I have "block unwanted pop ups" enabled. I watch tv shows on IE and 99% of the time when I click on a link a pop up is produced. I am constantly closing pop ups manually. Will this be fixed at all?

Hey INFINITE,

Sorry to hear you're having issues with popups.

I haven't been able to see any popups showing when I use the IE app. What site are you using that has those getting through?

Project Free Tv, every single time I click on something, I get a pop up. Also stream-tv.me is the same way.

Hey INFINITE,

You console is not designed to stream from free TV sites. We would recommend viewing your shows using a different method like Xbox Video or checking those sites on a computer/laptop.

So the "Block pop ups" option is basically just for aesthetics? Microsoft couldn't possibly believe that every single person who bought a One was going to be watching on Netflix or Xbox Video could they? This feature, or should I say lack of one makes Internet Explorer the most aggravating thing about the Xbox one, well.....maybe not the most aggravating, but I'll say it's in at least a 4 way tie for that award

It is aggravating, yet expected that IE would get the unconditional support from Microsoft. Even in my desktop, IE fails to provide a great pop up blocker.  I am so thankful that Adblock Plus is working outstandingly when I use Mozilla. As far as Project Free TV...nevermind...go elsewhere to watch...that is really lame.  Dontcha ya know we like your console and want it to provide live gaming then the ease of hopping on our browse sites?
