How do I block a website from being loaded automatically from another website?

I want to be able to instruct Firefox to block certain web pages/sites from loading. (The particular problem is certain sites which I DO want to view automatically opening other web pages/sites in new Firefox windows.) There ought surely to be a facility in the Options menu or elsewhere to specify particular sites to be blocked from loading, but I can't find one. I'm sure the hated Internet Explorer had such a facility. Where is it in Firefox?

You can try Adblock Plus:

You need to subscribe to a Filter list (e.g. the EasyList).
