Since the official Netscape release doesn't have the Preferences UI to
disable unrequested popups (right?), how about this: a page keeps track
of the unrequested popups it generates, and when it unloads it closes all
of them.  That way, if you go to a page with oodles of popup ads, they'll
all magically disapear as toon as you exit the page.

Well, sometimes that unrequested pop-up is actually a placeholder while another
page loads.  I don't see why this 'new' UI would be included in Netscape when
the other one isn't.  All a user has to do is edit the prefs.js manually.
