I had the very same problem. Just go to the link below and load the extension in Firefox.
It works great!
I spent sometime messing with this. Ran every scan in the book and clean what little was found to still not have it fixed. I couldn't just settle for the pop up blocker fix there was something in my computer that did not need to be there. I tried deleting Firefox and reinstalling but this was no fix either. I noticed this was the only browser I had having these pops ups. So here was my fix hope it helps you as well. First export your bookmarks. Download revo uninstaller free version. Select Firefox and use the advance removal. When it starts to uninstall check the box to remove all the settings and everything. When revo starts its part tell it to remove everything that it fines in the registry. Once it finishes restart the computer reinstall Firefox and import your bookmarks. Good to go after that. Below are images of what revo found left behind after Firefox uninstaller ran. I will have to look through here and see what was in there causing the problem. Just haven't had time to look at it yet.

I had the same problem on an XP machine. It seemed to go away after I disabled the SelectionLinks 1.5 extension. Just to make sure, I re-enabled it and the problem came back. I just disabled it again.
