    You know the ones, they overlay on the screen with a well-hidden Close-X button somewhere that takes you a few seconds to find.

    Neither IE's nor Google's popup blockers seem to touch them. Anyone know one that will?

    indeed - there are still some that elude the built in pop up blocker but 95% are stopped dead in their tracks.

    the extra features of Firefox are superb
