    How to eliminate Firefox popups Once and For All

    C/P
    Like you, I love Firefox for many reasons, including popup blocking. So over the last few weeks I’ve been surprised to see occasional popups.

    It turns out that some clever people figured out that you could launch popups from Flash, getting around the Firefox default settings.

    Fortunately, you can get around it:

    1. Type about:config into the Firefox location bar.
    2. Right-click on the page and select New and then Integer.
    3. Name it privacy.popups.disable_from_plugins
    4. Set the value to 2.

    The possible values are:

    * 0: Allow all popups from plugins.
    * 1: Allow popups, but limit them to dom.popup_maximum.
    * 2: Block popups from plugins.
    * 3: Block popups from plugins, even on whitelisted sites.

    This really works!

    Ever since getting the extension NoScript I haven't seen any popups. NoScript disables Java so you can select the ones you trust.

    Didn't realize this said Flash.

    The Flashblock extension and the Adblock extension are lifesavers. Remember to get the Filterset.G
