The first one is *not* a popup. The easy way to tell the difference is just to close the tab/window: if it's still there, it was a popup, if it's gone, it was a web page fouling it's own nest. If they instead chose to start with an image ad with a link to click to get to the actual content, it would be no different, and I know plenty of sites that use the exact same script as that to do actual content, so "movable divs with an X in the upper right" can never just be prohibited (though there are bugs around to stop the more aggressively flashing and jumping ones). The second one, with Flash triggering a popup, is actually fixed, but only via a hidden pref that you have to create. With privacy.popups.disable_from_plugins set to 2, Barbie has to beg permission to open a popup. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 258487 ***
