Pop-ups not being blocked
I have the latest Firefox (18.0.2) on Mac 10.7.5. A few days ago I updated it with the latest Java (7_13) because we use some software in my company that requires it.
Before the update, Firefox blocked two pop-up ads on my company's web site (www.lawtechnologynews.com).
After the update, the pop-ups are no longer blocked. I made sure the pop-up blocker is still enabled and that our domains are not excepted.
I figured out that during my Java and Firefox updates, I somehow lost the ad blocker extension. Reinstalled that, and now it works fine.Read this answer in context 0

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
- Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
- Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
- Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
- Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.
