Hi Gerald, To use a Pop-Up Blocker it´s the best you use an Add-On. To install an Add-On you must go to this page Install Ghostery and install this. It´s from the offical Mozilla Website, so it´s Virus free and safe. I hope I could help you Supporter_Alex

On Firefox for Android, you may try this:

Type about:config with a : in the Location (address) bar Search dom.disable_open_during_load and set it to false

To enable the popup blocker again just toggle above preference back to true.

Firefox for Android has a popup blocker built in. That extension is a form of Ad blocker.
