Popup Windows

Now that you have a handle on browsing with Mozilla, let's look at a few ways in which you can manage the quality and security of your browsing experience. 

There they are, wherever you turn.  Ads and special offers, balloons and billboards exploding across your screen.  Just like someone's come along and emptied a waste basket all across your desktop.  After a while, we get used to closing popups or dragging them away, just to finish a sentence in peace.

What if you could just turn them off?

That's what Mozilla lets you do.  Just turn them off.  Block all of them, if you like, or let some of them through if they come from a trusted site.  The choice is yours.

By default, Mozilla will allow popups to open in your browser window.  Let's go into our preferences and change the rules a little bit.
