Firefox Popups

Like you, I love Firefox for many reasons, including popup blocking. So over the last few weeks Iíve 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:

Type about:config into the Firefox location bar.
Right-click on the page and select New and then Integer.
Name it privacy.popups.disable_from_plugins
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.

thank you SO much for finding this.

I spotted it awhile ago on, but I hadn't seen it since, and never got around to actually doing it.
