There's a pop-up blocker built right into Firefox. No need for add-ons. If you want to remove ads from sites, check out Ad Block Plus.

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!

If you're getting pop-ups in Firefox with its pop-up blocker turned on, something is seriously wrong. Choosing the filters in Ad Block Plus is really straightforward, I can't understand what the problem is. You basically just pick which subscription list you want to subscribe to - that's all there is to it.

As it relates to the odd pop-ups - have you, by chance, been visiting any explicit websites that required you to install a plug-in to view certain content? If so, the pop-up blocker is likely not your issue - there is a very common trojan that is installed in this manner and will result in symptoms like the one you describe.
