How do I block pop up videos. I have checked the box to block pop ups but I still get the videos.
As soon as I click on my homepage I get a video pop up. I have the box checked to block all pop ups but this still happens. This is annoying. Please reply in English, I am not computer literate. Thank you. In case this matters I have Windows 7.

you could try an Add-on like Adblock Plus or NoScript.
Go to Tools -> Add-ons -> Get Add-ons and search for one of these.
