Firefox Improves Pop-Up Ad Blocking
Firefox Improves Pop-Up Ad Blocking (Slashdot)
BlakeCaldwell writes “The popular open-source browser already contains a pop-up blocker by default, but this does not handle pop-ups launched by plug-ins such as Flash and Java. Mozilla employee Asa Dotzler wrote in his blog last week that Mozilla developers are responding to the increasing number of advertisers that are using plug-ins to launch pop-up ads.”
Interesting. I was wondering why so many pop-ups were making it through lately.
Solved a mystery for me too. I usually turn off plugins but I’ve been turning them on for work lately… and I’ve been getting popups.
