Random Firefox Popups

Postby jer1ch0 » Sun Nov 06, 2005 10:37 pm

Being getting some random popups in FF recently. This will sort it.
1. Type about:config into the Firefox location bar.
2. Right-click on the page and select New and then Integer.
3. Name it privacy.popups.disable_from_plugins
4. Set the value to 2.

The possible values are:

* 0: Allow all popups from plugins.
* 1: Allow popups, but limit them to dom.popup_maximum.
* 2: Block popups from plugins.
* 3: Block popups from plugins, even on whitelisted sites.

Just thought I'd post this in case anyone has a similar problem.
