Thanks to Squize at Tales From the Code Front I was pointed to a tip on how to block popups that are snuck into firefox via flash.

Pretty handy. If you need to let a specific site use this technique (for security purposes) Just add that site to your whitelist.

To edit your whitelist I think you just need to:

  1. Goto Tools Options
  2. Choose Web Features

  3. Click on the button “Allowed Sites” by block popups

  4. Enter the site url

  5. Click Allow
