For example, every time I click on "Next" in the photo gallery, I get a popup (or pop-under) the next time I click on something. The popups load a flash ad for Netflix, the title bar reads "c1.zedo.com - UndertoneNetworks.com" Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to http://abc.go.com/primetime/octoberroad/ 2.Click on link to another page within site, or on next photo, or just click "reload page" 3.Click anywhere on the page after that -- Presto! A popup Actual Results: I get a popup window. Expected Results: Block the fricken popup. I use the Flashblock plugin, ver. 1.5.2. It blocks the Flash ad within the popup window, but not the window itself.
As I understand Fx's pop-up blocker, any pop-up that results directly from a click is considered "user-requested". It can't tell the difference between a click on the "next" button to display a useful pop-up dialog box and a click on the "next" button to display a pop-up advertisement.
(In reply to comment #1) I'm aware of what you are referring to, but that wasn't the problem. The problem was that a popup would be generated when I clicked anywhere, including a blank area on the page. No buttons or links required. I've never encountered popup behavior like that anywhere before or since. Anyway, it's a moot point, because I can no longer reproduce the bug. I'll change it to Resolved. Thanks

I see probably the same issue with this web page of a premiere newspaper in Germany: http://www.faz.net/. Click on some of the news, a pop-under is likely to appear despite Firefox being set to open new windows always in a Tab, *and* despite a popup blocker active.
