@ Gijs Kruitbosch [:Gijs] - Please have a look on this bug, it could be the same or similar issue as bug #1208825. Thanks.

Using the attachment, I just get a notification bar warning that the page has tried to open a crapload of popups, but no new tabs open, and I can click the tab close icon just fine (while the initial alert is up, or if I click the [OK] button on the alert which seems to just reload the page) to make the tab go away.

I can't open the original URL in the report (my ISP has blocked it).

To the reporter: do you have the popup blocker disabled or something?

Without more details about why the popup blocker wouldn't be blocking the calls (which I can't see any reason for off-hand from looking at the source of the attached page) it's going to be difficult to do anything meaningful here.

So wither you disabled popup blocker as Gijs Kruitbosch [:Gijs] wrote or other extension is causing this, so try with clean new fresh profile without any addons (extensions, plugins, themes, etc.). I'm marking this bug WORKSFORME for now, reopen if you still will be reproducing issue in new profile.
