heh. One more reason to use Opera. I can safely say I don't like Firefox. I've used Opera on Windows, Linux, QNX and BSD - and it's just darn great. Built-in features (mouse gestures, popup blocking) as opposed to plugins/extensions, the Opera skins change more than just icons (!!) and it also has a *relatively* small footprint. It's not open-soure, but the features it has over the Mozilla suite just seem to make it better - and worth the price (or download of the free fully functional ad-enabled version).

EDIT: You use Firefox...on Operamail.com - oh the irony. Do you see the irony ?! Hiyuk Hiyuk Hiyuk.

I'm definitely blocking popups.

AOL puts four cookies on your box...

aol.com - s_sq

aol.com - s_cc

www.aol.com - nonmember_onload - Content: 1

www.aol.com - prompted - Content: -1

If either of the bottom two are missing, you'll get the popup.

I RARELY get any popups with Firefox. I have yet to run into a problem with it. I love it. I never really cared for opera much... Just didn't like it. No real particular reason other than the stupid ad in the way and I'm not about to pay for a browser.

That ain't a pop-up on tek-tips.com. It looks like one, but a "real" pop-up opens something up in a new window. That just uses a <DIV>...</DIV> and CSS to put a moving square on the page.

If you really want to get rid of that annoying square, find something that can block this file:

...I think AdBlock can filter it out, but disabling JavaScript (per-site) will do the job too. And, no, Opera wouldn't have blocked it either.

since its not a pop-up add, mozilla lets that ad bar on the right side of suprnova.org page display advertisements. so, in mozilla, if you right click and select 'this frame' > 'Show only this frame' the advertisement frame disappears.

0.9.3 - I'm super-anal about updating. Looks like tek-tips did away with that annoying ad.

Does that shut them off permanently?

I've seen sites that do PopUps in FireFox but only when you click a link ( goes to link and pops up an advert )

No, you are simply closing the frame, doing the same thing you could do manually in IE through viewing the source

At least Mozilla/Firefox lets you do that. I'm sure Microsoft will put that feature in its web browser in about 80 years.

Like http://omghax.endofinternet.net...very annoying. So to prevent anyone further from exploiting that, I'm gonna put a © and on those methods.
