A pop up blocker in my opinion isn't really necessary. With firefox + AD-Block Plus, all my pop ups are usually blocked.

Here's a site I found which can do pop ups tests for you:

http://www.popuptest.com/


Here are 2 good commercial pop up blockers which I would recommend.

1. Super Ad Blocker

2. Pop-Up Sentry

I have firefox 3.0.3 with adblock plus with filterset g plus super ad blocker----all latest updated versions, and it gives me 60-65% blockage but not 100% results, dnt know what to do.Suggest a full proof way out. I have been doing pop up tests for the last 1 year and tests have always been 100% excellent, no problems but when i browse certain websites, a flying pop up window tab opens at the taskbar when i click a mp3 song to download/listen.

You can get NoScript to block scripts from a particular page that uses Mouse-over pop ups.

It can be quite annoying however, when that green bar keeps poping up at the bottom.

the addons i have in my firefox are-------tabmix plus,foxmarks,roboform,no script,ad block plus,flash blocker,filterset g,cooliris,wot, mcafee site advisor, IE pluggin,febe,tab preview and some more, the problem is that i dnt want No script addon to be enabled 24/7 while surfing regular sites like yahoo,msn, also, because sometimes too many add ons make firefox slower. Therefore i have to disable it temporarily, but then when i want to activate/enable it later it doesnt work and asks me for reinstallation.So, i figured out that no script is not a permanent solution to this issue. This happens everytime. But then i tried superad blocker but it didnt work/help either, Hence, i was looking for a solid pop up blocker which can help, suggest some other alternatives if u can,thanks

You can turn the bar off at the bottom.

NoScript wants re-installing? What version of Firefox are you using?

Hello techy.
I don't know why it does that. But I hear good things about STOPzilla.
Download from here.
