    I am having a little problem with firefox. Recently i have noticed that there have been quite a few pop ups in the background. I never used to have ads pop up in the background before. The pop up blocker is already enabled and I visited popuptest.com to see if it works and it does. Why do I still get pop up ads and is there a way to fix it?

    I'm having this same issue with pop-under windows in both Safari and Firefox. It's quite irritating, and like you I have yet to find a fix.

    adblock works like a charm.
    i am still wondering what caused the sudden failure of firefox's pop up blocker.
