"Firefox has prevented this website from opening a popup window"

:iconfiredolphin:
FireDolphin Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2006
Awesome! Except for one little thing: it hasn't.

You thought you blocked it, almighty Firefox, but despite the highlighted and subtly animated glorious
announcement of your accomplishment, it still popped. Right on my face. I know, dearest Firefox, that you are the best thing that has ever happened to the Internet since Google, and I'm aware of your well-worth reputation. I've even fought at your side in a number of really dumb and pointless text wars between your loyal followers and the fandom of your arch enemy of all times, IE (:shakefist: that bastard!).

BUT

You look fucking ridiculous when you go all "OMG PRAISE ME! I JUST PWND THAT STUPID AD! I'M TEH FIREFOX, BITCH", yet you have actually done nothing but embarrass yourself.



*And before some of you go "that's why Internet Explorer is teh bestest", it happens the exact same thing with it.

Opera's better. It blocks popups, but it gives you the option to open them. It's great for sites that insist on opening in new windows. :D

I made an extensive research (3 google links, but oh well) Opera seems to be the best.

Yes, I definitely would switch to opera if I wanted something more feature rich... I actually can't stand firefox.

I think Safari is more WC3 compliant than opera, but they are both close to being perfect. And I use Safari because it works hand in hand with OS X to sync all my information to my two computers.

They never come up in my face. I get maybe one a week, or so, but they pop up in a new tab behind everything else. Which makes me feel just so special.

Tab Mix Plus. <3

It's like when I go to those websites that use Java to disable right-clicking, it pops up the message to disable it, yet my right-click context menu still pops up :D

I actually have the popup blocker disabled and I don't ever get them. I think Adblock Plus does all the work.

I think that happens when there are more than one pop-ups on that page.
Sometimes it'll block 1 out of 2, sometimes 2 out of 3. Same with IE.

But I don't really care anymore. I don't usually visit sites with pop-ups.

They explained me that it is another "mode" of ads, that makes them appear behind the current window rather than on top of it.

Maybe Firefox is so used to be praised and pwning newbs that it feels it's word is final, despite being flawed and often painfully slow.

Kinda like forum regulars. :aww:
