Yes, this pop-up window in facebook is getting extremely annoying and most times after clicking on Ok, it will take me to a page totally opposite to where I wanted to go.

When I chat on the Scrabble Discussion Board I have to click Ok constantly with each post even though I am not navigating away from that page but merely replying to a post on the same original page.

It is not present on Chrome or IE 8, just on firefox, why?

Please remove, fix, or tell me how to disable this totally useless pop-up.

In the paste that pop-up on Facebook pages had been reported to be caused by some specific gadgets used on the Facebook page. So you can try to remove some of them to see if that helps.

Unfortunately the forum threads about this issue were removed after the forum software migrated new software in last August.

Thank you for the reply, I'll check out my facebook settings to see if I can find these gadgets that you wrote about.
