Pop-up blocker

I'm going to revive an old thread here rather than start a new one.

Does anyone know where to get a good pop up blocker for Firefox? I tried looking on their website but couldn't find anything.

If you need a pop up blocker then you have bigger issues like a virus or spyware infection...

It's not just random pop ups, I don't have those... it's mostly while going to sites I've never been to before or some that have recently been googlized etc. I have AVG on my computer, it seems to work very well at detecting and removing spyware etc.

But i'll look into that adblocker, thanks

so...you resurrected a 2+ year-old thread about a now-obsolete version of firefox to ask about a pop-up blocker? Split to a new thread.


Firefox 2.x comes with a popup blocker built-in that takes care of everything I've ever run into. If you're still using a previous version, it's time to upgrade.

Yeah, i've got got version 2.0.0.12 or something like that crap, it's just been recently downloaded. It catches some stuff, but not everything. I just installed that adblocker add on that someone else mentioned, seems to be doing ok.

I searched for FF threads rather than making a new one yes, seeing as it still pertains to firefox.

easy there bud. If you read the thread you'll see i went into a thread that was already dedicated to Firefox before a mod created a new thread out of it. Settle down.

Google may give me an answer, but so do people with experience and knowledge of PC's and their features.

lord forbid if we read before we make a comment....

I'm running 2.0.0.12 and it catches almost everything, about 90% I'd say.

Another thing you can use is the Immunize feature from Spybot - Search & Destroy, it will add a huge list of harmful sites into your registry, so your computer wouldn't even able to go to those sites.

yeah i would say it catches about 90% to, but on IE I had NO pop ups, that's why I was wondering if there was something else to intsall.

I'm not getting an insane amount of pop ups or anything like that, I just don't want them at all. Which is what happened on IE, I was just always told that FF was a cleaner browser. As for how true that is, I don't know.
