Shazam Not Working
EDIT: I should have said "Shazam" isn't working.

I can get the pages to open in tabs in FF but then it just freezes and none of the tabs will open where I can enter.

In Chrome it will only load one tab the first sweep on the list.

I have cleared cache and cookies, rebooted. Nothing works.

Never mind! I got it to work by turning off the ad-blockers.

In Chrome, you have to go into your settings and allow pop-ups from OLS.

Chrome Menu, Settings, Advanced Settings, Privacy, Content Settings, Pops, Under the Alllow section, click Add and type in www.online-sweepstakes.com and set to Allow.

You can still use AdBlocker.

I also have a Mac and use Safari. Shazzam stopped working yesterday after an update of the software, so I assume it's related.
I tried turning off "block Pop-ups" in Safari Preferences and it didn't help.
It is working for me in Firefox, but it opens a new page for each sweep.
I can live with that for now.

Thanks I quit using Chrome for Shazam a long time ago. I just couldn't get it to work. I downloaded FF just for this. I didn't do anything to it after I downloaded. It worked so I didn't change anything. A couple of days ago for some reason I added add blockers to FF and then it wouldn't work anymore. It took me a minute to remember I had added the ad blockers and as soon as I removed them it all started working again.

I'm going to do as you suggested and try to enter through Chrome tomorrow. Thanks! Will let you know how it goes.

Same Problem
Starting Yesterday 9/21

In safari, Shazam only opens one sweepstakes on any given page.

Very frustrating.

YAY! Glad my instructions made sense with the typos. I got a new keyboard and it's touchy. Apparently I didn't proofread!

Trying Opera on my MAC
Frustrated with Safari and Firefox, I have started using Opera on my Mac. It's really fast, the shazzam function works and it has a nice built in form fill. Plus ad blockers and a VPN and free

So, I use Safari. Does this mean I can never use Shazam on this site again. If so, I might have to move onto another site after all these years.

Have you tried allowing pop-up from OLS? Here are some links I found that explain how you can do that!

https://apple.stackexchange.com/ques...specific-sites

https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

This gives specific instructions on how to allow pop-ups in Safari. I suppose you could allow them when you use shazam and then check it when you aren't. Other than that the link above says you can install adblocker and allow specific sites through that. Safari doesn't have to option to allow certain sites.

Thanks for the info, but I already tried allowing popups and it still doesn't work. Why has it worked all these years, but stopped working now?
