Pop-up Blocking in Mozilla and Netscape

Wednesday August 14th, 2002

CNET has an article about pop-up blocking in Mozilla and Netscape 7.0. According to the report, the 'Open unrequested windows' checkbox won't be included in Netscape's next release. The piece, which includes quotes from James "Kovu" Russell, says that the option was removed because AOL relies on pop-up advertisements for revenue. However, Netscape 7.0 users can easily restore the feature.

Add the following entry to user.js in your mozilla profile directory... create it if it doesn't already exist (and it probably won't). It will be merged into prefs.js automagically, the next time mozilla is started.

user_pref("dom.disable_open_click_delay", 1000);
