Gmail links blocked

I used to be able to click on incoming and my own outgoing email links in Safari and a new tab would appear. I just updated to Maverick and reinstalled Safari (and AdBlock). Now, when I click on a link, it's blocked. How do I customize AdBlock so that it allows Gmail links to open a new tab?

    What do you mean when you say "the link is blocked"?

    The link blocked means that we can't click in the link and open a new page. After install Adblock my Mac can't open webs clicking in links in Gmail and any other web in the internet. How can I change the configuration of Adblock to open webs clicking in links?

    Hi Leo,

    Does your problem disappear if you disable AdBlock in Safari > Preferences > Extensions > AdBlock?

    The best is uninstall Adblock because sometimes it works good, sometimes not. Now, I disabled adblock in safari and because that the webpages from Mackeeper cleaner are always appearing when I click in any link in any web. But at least I can click in links in may gmail page. That is terrible. Sorry for my opinion.

    Hi Leo,

    MacKeeper ads are caused by malware on your computer. Please see this page.
