Wtf? I've been getting pop-ups even just being on Google. Coincidentally, a lot are for "StopZilla" which is supposedly a pop-up blocking program. I have never before had trouble with pop-ups, so this is kind of weird. I've checked to make sure FireFox is set to block pop-ups, and there are no exceptions.


What do I need to do fix this?


Thanks!

Do you have the add-ons 'pop up blocker' and 'no script'?

Edit: enabled?



Never heard of 'em. I have AdBlockPlus though. I'll go get the other 2 though. I may have no script... seems familiar kind of.

I haven't looked at porn. That's why I don't understand why I suddenly have pop-ups, up the ass.

I found and installed NoScript, but I didn't find "pop up blocker"... I just got a pop up, so it's not done with yet

what about reinstalling firefox? maybe run a virus scan anyway?

I've already got a full system scan going, so far it's found 2 tracking cookies.

Still has like 800,000 files to go though.

I think 'pop up blocker' is actually the generic name used to refer to AdBlockPlus. Sorry for the confusion. Like the others said do a scan as there's probably something in your computer as opposed to filtering through your current Firefox setup.

Personally I never had trouble with it, it does everything for you.
