I wonder why people put up with pop-ups. I'm anything but a computer geek but I haven't had pop-ups for years now. Try Mozilla and the ad add on. Works for me.

IDK my computer stops them for some reason. Guess the popup blocker does it's job and I'm glad cause it must be a PITA having them.

If you have Adblock Plus you need to turn off "Allow some non-intrusive advertising".

See, ABP happens to be a complete dick of a company that basically told advertising companies that they could pay ABP to be considered a "non-intrusive ad", which are enabled by default, or they can just go fuck themselves and watch as the money they obtain from ad views drops. Disabling the option should fix the problem.

Otherwise it might be malware. Rogue toolbar, possibly? I had to get rid of a couple of those recently.

Check permissions for the site. If still getting them the site's probably being given eprmisison to do pop-ups.

Tools,
Options,
Content

Make sure the Block Popups box is checked and there's no URLs in the Exceptions box.

TWO essentials with Firefox (Mozilla):

adblock
noscript

and be sure you have your preferences set for automatic Firefox updates. There have been several in recent weeks.

HOWEVER:

If you add those two to Firefox, keep another browser available for when you want to buy stuff online, particularly travel items (airline tix, hotel rserervations) as those blockers will screw up the ordering process.

A warm place with no memory.
I think it helps if you are a Supporting Member. Fewer to no pop-ups has been my experience.

This shit costs money. Frankly, you can Shirley pony up something.

I've never had a single pop-up on here.

NLT, either you're watching too much porn or you click on way too many ads.

Here:

Spybot - Search & Destroy from Safer-Networking Ltd.
https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
AVG | AVG Antivirus 2014

Those will change your computer using life. If you have any questions about them PM me. I get extra salary at work because I handle the computers. Those links lead to products that are all free too. If you're willing to pay I have even better things to tell you about.

Sorry about the porn joke. But if that's not the problem, then seriously stop clicking on ads.
