From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020510 BuildID: 2002051006 The JS code in the ad linked above somehow bypasses the preference for no pop-up windows. If you place this code in a blank HTML document you get a pop-up ad, even if the preference is turned off. I will update if I am able to determine what is unique about this code that makes it function this way. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a blank HTML document. 2. Download the JS code from http://ad.doubleclick.net/adj/N339.glispa/B939866.4;abr=!ie;sz=720x300;ord=[timestamp] 3. Put this code in the document, enclose in script tags. 4. On page load, an unrequested advertisement window will open. Actual Results: I should have not seen the pop-up advertisement. Expected Results: Mozilla should have suppressed the pop-up window. This ad was originally encountered at http://www.ucomics.com, and the advertisement is for trip.com. If you reload ucomics.com enough times you should also be able to see the pop-up ad.
The problem is that the popup is created from the onLoad of the image. Adding this pref to your user.js file should fix the problem: user_pref("dom.disable_open_click_delay", 1000); *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 126224 ***
