In the "Advanced->Scripts % Plugins" section of the preferences, there used to
be an option called "Open unrequested windows". Of coarse, the let a user choose
whether or not they wanted to let web sites open unrequested windows. Basically,
this was a pop-up blocker. In the Linux version, it still exists, but in the
Windows version it isn't! What happened?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the menu "Edit".
2. Click on "Preferences".
3. Expande "Advanced"
4. Choose "Scripts & Plugins".
5. See that "Open unrequested windows" no longer exists.
6. Cry as the pop-ups take over your screen <:-(

Actual Results:  
1. I wondered why it was no longer there. :-?
2. I submited this "bug".

Expected Results:  
They should have not taken away, purposally or not, the option to not let sites
open unrequested windows.
