Popups in Firefox

Some web sites, including our own beloved State Journal Register, are able to defeat Firefox's popup blocker. This has bothered me for some time. Pete Bevin has posted a way to beat it:

  1. Type about:config into the Firefox location bar.
  2. Right-click on the page and select New and then Integer.
  3. Name it privacy.popups.disable_from_plugins
  4. Set the value to 2.

He lists values other than 2 (see Firefox Popups), but 2 works well for me. Thanks, Pete! [via]
