Popup Suggestion

Postby NoPopups » Mon Mar 16, 2015 8:41 pm

When ABP blocks a popup, it briefly flashes on the screen before being closed. Is there any way of preventing this behaviour, so the popup is not shown at all?

I am using Firefox on Windows.

Supposedly, you can accomplish that with Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon (a third-party extension from a different author).

Thanks - I tried the Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon and it worked fine. However, could ABP's built-in popup blocker be amended to not momentarily show popups?

I filed the following report. We'll see if anything comes of it.
