Safari pops up windows to set Vimeo cookies

Hi Brett,

I love Marked, but I'm having an issue when I include Vimeo embeds in my Markdown files. Here's a sample embed:

 <iframe src="" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe>

Vimeo apparently tries to set a cookie each time Marked renders its view, and each time it triggers a popup (or re-triggers the same popup) in Safari.

Can Marked get access to Safari's cookies? (My guess is no.)
Or can Marked be extended to handle cookies? (Sounds like a big feature.)

Any advice?

Thanks for your time,

—Jeremy Schulz

    I believe this is fixed for the next version. If we're looking at the
    same problem, it's not so much about the cookie or the popup as it is
    about Marked handling external links. I've relaxed Marked's
    restrictions on external content for the next version, and have been
    able to load Vimeo issues on refresh without opening Safari. Hopefully
    that solves the issue, (and I'll do some more testing before release).
    If not, I'll look into allowing Marked to handle its own cookies while
    suppressing popups.
