No, that pref blocks everywhere, including when you click a link. To block only unrequested windows, you want user_pref("dom.disable_open_during_load", true);

No. To prevent web pages frmo making pages open in a new window (in other words: override target="_blank"), you use user_pref("browser.block.target_new_window", true);
