Firefox Pop-ups Block

Ad BlockingThe Firefox community has become aware of ‘new-style’ pop-ups that manage to fool various built-in blockers. Here is a tweak that can make your life pop-up-free once again:

  • In the address field, type in about:config and press ENTER
  • Open a context menu (mouse secondary button) and hit New -> Integer
  • Type in privacy.popups.disable_from_plugins at the first prompt
  • Type in 2 at the next prompt (value)
  • Also find privacy.popups.firstTime in the list and change its value to false

Get FirefoxYou can now enjoy the Internet without seeing its ugly sides. Also make sure that advertisements are blocked.
