Proximotron came highly recommended from another forum, but I found it to be buggy, and it's not simple as hell to configure. I went back to the free version of Pop Up stopper... simple and as effective.

Same here. Back to Pop-Up Stopper for me - it doesn't get any simpler than set it and forget it.

Another happy user here, although Ive just stopped using it as Norton Firewall 2003 has a built in ad blocker which seems to work well.

To enable popup blocking in Mozilla:
Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Scripts & Plugins
Make sure that "Open unrequested windows" is unchecked.

For another decent popup-blocking browser, try http://www.avantbrowser.com. It's got the groovy tabs like Mozilla and Phoenix, and it's built on the IE services. Not too shabby, especially if you're an IE fan. I still prefer Mozilla for most things, Avant Browser is pretty decent as well.

Cheers,
JND

Best Ad killer ever is "Adsgone" I have had no problems with it and it stops everything!

This forum tends to frown upon links to warez/warez-related sites. You haven't posted warez before, so it's not like we're gonna kill you or anything, but we're just watching our butts.

/off topic

I recently downloaded an app called Pop Oops, it's freeware and blocks all popup ads. It works great and can be bypassed by holding the ctrl button.
