As Firefox is touted to make web surfing not annoying and safe, it should have pop-under blocking as well. It seems that using the combination of AdBlock and Tabbrowser Preferences works around the problem. Note that I have not experienced myself those pop-unders, maybe beacause i Have both extensions installed. I got in touch while reading my regular sites and boards. This bug also concerns the Application Suite. http://forum.micro.info/viewtopic.php?t=49534 [fr_CA] http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=21364 Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.warp2search.net/ Actual Results: Get pop-under windows :-( Expected Results: No forsaken pop-under window should appear
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050128 Firefox/1.0 (Ubuntu) (Ubuntu package 1.0+dfsg.1-2ubuntu5) I disabled adblock and couldn't reproduce. Do you have flash installed as I notice the site has flash and I am wondering if it is this that is triggering the advert.
The only difference between a popup and a popunder is whether the opening script calls window.blur() on the new window after it's open (or window.focus() on the original window). The distinction is not relevant to the popup blocker. warp2search.net is just another client of the fastclick script.
