    Angry Fullscreen Pop-up windows

    Hi.

    Yeah I've enabled firefox pop-up blocker and have installed a pop-up blocker plugin to get rid of the junk comes on my screen. But non of these blockers can block some popups. Ex. There's one site that opens a fullscreen window in the background whenever I click on a text box etc. And what about those Newsletter suggestions. Is there a way to block all these forced advertisements? This is a violation of user rights.

    Thanks.

    Try uBlock Origin if you haven't already. Works well for me.

    It's an never-ending struggle. People use new plugins to get rid of all the detritus that pop's on the screen, and other people find ways to bypass them...

    Also, make sure you don't use multiple add-ons of this type, this one suffices.
