Apart from the aforementioned Adblock Plus extension, you can install an extension like Yes Popups for more fine-grained control over pop-up blocking.

Caveat:

  • The Block All setting also blocks the file picker window for file uploads.
  • The Block All setting also blocks links that are set to open in a new tab/window via the target attribute.
