Firefox Flash Popups

Firefox popups | www.petebevin.com

Original Source Article (a bit more technical/background)

Well, it's taken almost a year, but the scum of the Earth has apparantly found a method to get a popup or two to happen in FireFox.

See the above link for the original article.

(In case the article/link dies - I'm posting the instructions here as well.)
" 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."

That simple little adjustment will prevent Flash popups. (I would expect the next FireFox update to contain this option very shortly).
