How to disable popups in Firefox

If you know of an IE PC fix and/or a Mac Safari fix, feel free to link in the comments.

If you, like me, loathe‘s popups, and refuse to have a cookie from their site as a removal solution, here’s what you do.

For Firefox:

  1. Go here.
  2. Install the plugin (click link at bottom)
  3. Restart Firefox.
  4. Click “Adblock” on bottom right of Firefox
  5. Add “” into the text field. Click Ok.

If the link in step 1 link rots, search Google for “AdBlock”. If you can’t install the plugin, make sure Firefox isn’t blocking the installation from it. You should see a yellow bar at the top of the page letting you know the installation failed. You can click the edit button there to allow that site to install plugins.

Additionally, you can use it for Intellitxt as well, the gents who make the ad pop-ups for the double underlined green links (not always green).

  1. Yeah, that sets a cookie, Alessandro. And, as a web developer, I delete my cache all the time. When I do, ‘forgets’ that I asked it to stop showing.

    This ensures that it’ll never forget again.
