Why do I get an extra window, which is blank?

When I click on links to articles, I often have two windows open. One is the article, the other is usually an ad, either to subscribe to the source of the article, or sometimes for something else (e.g. Netflix). These, I understand.

But when I go to townhall.com, another window always opens, which is blank and stays blank.

Why does this happen? What is the advantage to the web site of having a second window on my browser, with nothing visible on it?:)

It doesn't happen to me when I go there so it's probably something to do with the way your browser is set up.

I didn't get any popups when I just visited the site...

Perhaps you should post a Hijack This log for Pancake....
