How can I block a particular pop-up window that gets through despite blocking.

Posted

A lot of the time, not all the time but lots, when I open Firefox, another window opens. It's a poker game.

AdBlock add-on does a perfect job at blocking this kind of pop-ups. At least much much better than I could do myself.

got to Tools > addons and search for adBlock. Or - simpler - check "Most popular" page at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/extensions/?sort=users.

14M users can not be that wrong (g).
