I can not get the pop up blocker to work no matter how many times I click for it to be on......I have uninstalled, reinstalled updated and all the 'tricks and tips' listed but still no functioning pop up blocker... I even tried to reinstall a older version (25) of FireFox, but it would not install -- so I reinstalled FireFox 26 but still have multiple popups on each tab or page I open.

My daughter can not do her online work because the popups flash and have triggered her to have a siezure.

hello Dday, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware on your pc.

please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc).
also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.
finally, run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.
