Firefox tip!!

Postby Phatferd » Sun Aug 14, 2005 2:56 am

I came across this. I know that Firefox has a few pop-ups sneak by, such as some from this site. I hope this helps.

The ad that FBC lets in is actually a pop-under since it doesn't actually come up on top of your browser :-D

Exactly. Nice Find though. I'll have to see if it works. ;-D

Get the noscript extension
https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/m ... =10&id=722

It allows you to whitelist sites that you want java script (and hence any popups or what not) to execute. I no longer get the popunder when coming here. The caveat is: To use the Emoticons in replies, you have to enable java (by right clicking on no script). When you do this, it will reload the page, and you'll get the popunder for that session. If you know the shortcut keys for the smilie, you have no problems though.

I use noscript to check my local news that has javascript setup to redirect. With javascript blocked, I no longer go to the sign in site. It's a pretty convenient program, since I don't get popups I don't want anymore.

I don't get anything from the Cafe. Pop-ups, pop-unders, ads, anything.

I guess its just Firefox and I've blocked the right things with Adblock.
