    Default pop ups

    For the people who use firefox.... does it not block as much pop ups anymore or is it just me? If so, is there anything i can do about it? For example when you try to download manga after you click on the file you want 3 pop up windows just go up and i hate it!!! I love this site its probably one of the first sites i started to dl manga from, but the reason i got firefox was to stop pop ups and now it doesn't do jack shit. Any suggestions????

    the popup blocker on firefox isn't the greatest, it seems to block some while letting others thru. This happens to me on many websties, not just this one.

    I won't suggest anything as I myself am weary while downloading anything....if you really want to find a popup blocker I suggest looking at download.com

    thats not an option, AT ALL! IE is the worst browser in existence... There is a higher security risk with it and many, MANY more popups.. atleast then the latest version of Opera.
    Please Google it! before asking!

    Keep with firefox. Alot of the popups that "get through" firefox are flash popups, not javascript. The ability to block flash popups is built into firefox, however disabled by default. This should take care of many of your popup problems, however there are still some that get through somehow...however considerably less.

    To enabled blocking flash popups:
    1) Type about:config into the url area of firefox and click go
    2) Right Click on the list and click new integer
    3) type privacy.popups.disable_from_plugins in the input box and click ok
    4) type 2 into the next input box and click ok

    get maxthon. Its better than firefox. Yes its based on IE, but the massive security holes have been fixed.

    There is a new browser war going on so we'll see who comes out victorious on the other side. The winning browser will have much of Firefox features, a bunch more, and of course, supports standards

    We know Google has registered gbrowser.com (I think) and that Microsoft have kickstarted their IE7. Firefox is of course still open source so that will help a lot.

    Those are the major ones right now. Perhaps Opera or some of the less mainstream browsers will join the mix (personally, I really want to see Hotjava improved )

    Opera isnt less mainstream.. at least not in Norway and large parts of Asia. they also got a cellphone browser.. which is kinda cool!

    (Opera is made by Norwegians.. Quality!)
