    I am working with uBot (version 3.5) to create a small bot and automate certain traffic exchanges. The problem arises when I try to exit the page containing browser/javascript popup.

    For example, this recent product launch from a well known Internet marketing "guru".


    Code:
    www.imwithjamie.com/imwithjamie_video_sales_nointro_ns_ref.php
    
    
    
    DISCLAIMER: This is just as an example, I have nothing to do with these products nor I recommend any of this to anyone.

    When you visit the above link in Internet Explorer (as uBot uses IE for its browser), and then try to leave the website you will get that browser/javascript popup with "WAIT! I WILL TRAIN YOU FOR PRICE BLAH BLAH BLAH BULL***T BULL***T BULL***T..." with 2 options:
    1. Leave this Page
    2. Stay on this page

    And that's the problem - some websites shown in traffic exchanges have these popups and I can't make uBot to click that "Leave this Page" button. I've tried disabling the javascript for IE, and then there are no popups, but then also the traffic exchange website doesn't work properly as some of its engine obviously relies on javascript.

    The idea is to make a hands-free bot that will run on my VPS while I sleep, study, play computer games or f***k b***es, but I just can't get this popup thingy solved.
    If anybody has any ideas, please help.

    I haven't used 3.5 for a long. long time and I don't think you can do anything about those popups.

    Can I ask why you haven't upgraded to V4 - that has more control over the popups (like disable the things!) and has got rid of IE as the default browser.

    Cheers

    Well, I can't upgrade since it's pre-installed on my VPS and I don't have admin access...
