  1. Is there a way to block pop-unders in Mozilla suite? I know how to block pop-ups, but it seems like an awful lot of sites lately are using pop-unders.

    Mozilla suite is NOT firefox. Don't be confused. Mozilla is the grand-daddy of firefox. I'm not interested in firefox answers.
    thanks!

    Using about:config with Mozilla Suite you can set "privacy. item".
    Set "privacy. popups. disable_from_plugins " to; 2: blocks popups from plugins
    This does not stop everything. many Flash pop-up / pop-under still get through.

    There are other settings that might help you. You will have to experiment.

    Search Google for about:config Mozilla
