Since all major browsers have built-in pop-up blockers (Firefox included), stand-alone pop-up blocker applications kinda died off the earlier part of the last decade. The programs you're looking at are likely quite old and haven't been updated to run on newer versions of OS X.

Unfortunately, a lot of the craftier marketing companies are finding new and more elusive ways of creating pop-ups, and they tend to thwart the pop-up blockers. If you're running into them regularly, might I suggest Ad Block Plus for Firefox? Not only will it quell pop-ups, but just about any advertising.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
