Get Popups Must Die!
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Firef...ons-1006.shtml

Disable Targets For Downloads
https://addons.mozilla.org/extension...cation=firefox

NoScript
https://addons.mozilla.org/extension...cation=firefox

Flashblock
https://addons.mozilla.org/extension...cation=firefox

Adblock & Adblock Filterset.G Updater
https://addons.mozilla.org/extension...cation=firefox
https://addons.mozilla.org/extension...cation=firefox

With these in places, you won't have pop-ups or the vast majority of ads bugging you.
