Controlling Rogue Popups

Lately it seems that more and more popups are managing to get through Firefox. It seems that the Macromedia Flash plugin allows Webmasters to launch popups in a way that bypasses Firefox's built-in blocking mechanism. Simply follow these steps to disable this annoyance:

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