pop up blockers are not being stopped by firefox

Reproducible: Always
Are they page content popups or random? If you're getting random popups you probably have malware/adware installed. Do you have any specific examples of pages that defeat the popup blockers? If not this bug probably gets made a duplicate of a general "improve popup blocking" bug.
