    for 2 years, I've used my mac with firefox and really NO popups.

    Now I have a popup that keeps coming up.

    How do I go about detecting which website is bring it up?

    I don't usually notice it until I cycle through my windows because sneakily - it doesn't Pop to front of screen, it pops behind my webpage... sneaky buggers.

    my hunch right now is it is like imageshack or a website like that. I've been looking at posted screen shots recently and think it is something like that.

    Thanks for your tips!

    I've seen it happen after using Orbitz, even though I have pop-ups set to off in firefox and also have AdBlock enabled. Does it show an address in the top of the window?
