I don't like web sites that decide that they MUST open a child browser window to do whatever they want to. I once was able to block this. If that block capability is still present, I sure can't find it.

Further, I don't like them deciding that I simply MUST see their video, listen to their audio or otherwise let them do things that I don't want to give them the capability of doing. Once upon a time many versions ago, I could block all these things. If those are available, I sure can't find them either.

These child windows, are they ads?

Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon {web link} Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon extends the blocking functionality of Adblock Plus to those annoying pop-up windows that open on mouse clicks and other user actions.

Flash block {web link} Never be annoyed by a Flash animation again! Blocks Flash so it won't get in your way, but if you want to see it, just click on it

Some are ads. But Yahoo insists on opening children windows for some of their partners rather than opening a tab; sometimes in addition to opening a tab. And, Yahoo is one of the worst offenders but far from the only one in starting audio or video. Flash block seems to kill those. I think that Adblock stops the children windows for the ones that I tried. But, there may be some that Adblock won't handle. If there are, I'll be opening a new support question and include the window link and how I got there. It got unbearable yesterday and I just now got back to my computer to work on it. I know that over the passage of years, I lost the ability to use a lot of plugins as Firefox version changes required plugin changes so that I turned them off and forgot about them :-(. And, I don't even remember where or how I found all of them.

Thanks for the fast answer and the help!
