Fix: recent pop-ups in Mozilla Firefox

The annoying web marketing folk have recently discovered a way to circumvent Mozilla Firefox's pop-up blocking mechanisms. The exploit seems to use Macromedia Flash, and can be blocked with the FlashBlock extension, which will allow you to play selective Flash animations when arriving at a website that tries to use this trick.

I've just installed FlashBlock, and it has worked for at least one site that has started delivering pop-ups in Mozilla.

It's too bad the extension doesn't allow you to also deliver electric shocks to the authors of the ads.
