Another Darn Nuisance

I visited a website with MP3 files.   The name was something like mp3bears.com.  Now I get popups (usually advertising nonsense:  "Does the new $5 bill mean the dollar is dead?" or something similar, Asian brides, etc.).  There is a * button for telling your browser to suppress such popups, but when I try to add the name that appears (mp3bear.co) to the block list, I get invalid address.  Similarly for mp3bear.co, and mp3bear.co).  Darn annoying, because their popup is displaying a false URL in the ad.

Curiously, I noticed that in addition to being on my block list, it was also on my allow list.  Hoping that removing it solved the problem.

I think that you could find the real URL by looking at your browser history
