A website I visit frequently causes an adult site to pop up in the background, behind all other windows. I'd like to block this site without resorting to parental controls as I am the only user of the computer.
When I visit a particular website and download files, a gambling site pops up in the background. How can I stop this site from popping up? I already have popups blocked.

A nice feature of Adblock Plus filters is that each subscription, and your own additions are maintained separately. Another is that you can bring up a "blockable items" report to see what can be blocked as well as what is blocked, and you can see the specific filter that is blocking an item, and mousing over the filter will tell you which subscription it is in.
BlockSite is another useful extension, which automagically blocks websites of your choice. Additionally, this extension will disable all hyperlinks to these websites, by just displaying the link text without the clicking functionality. Especially useful on search results lists to prevent you from clicking on something you already know you don't want to go to.
