Re: Problem with Importing

Just to be clear, there are two different, but suspect to be related problems. 1. If I go to import a web page, it has no way of clearing popups etc, before grabbing the content of the page - which means that what I end up seeing is covered by the popup. Which is why, I was using the Safari "sa...
