Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
It sometimes happens when I visit the site
Actual Results:  
It sometimes produces a pop-under

Expected Results:  
It should of blocked the popunder.
Firefox can't block it if the popup is a result of clicking a link.
We need more info how this popup/under is generated.

I want to produce a pop under, but looks like all pop under becomes pop up. 
Is there anyway to do that?

Please provide a public URL or reduced test case the exhibits this issue. But as Matti said, if it is the result of a click it can't be blocked.
GigaG, can you still reproduce the issue with the latest version of Firefox? A patch should prevent most popunders now.

Popunders have no usage except annoying the user. They are intentionally blocked by Firefox.
