Pop-ups on websites are very annoying. Some websites use pop-up ads and on opening the website, the ads pop-up from no where. These pop-ups come in different sizes and obstruct our clear view of the content on the web page. It is very irritating to keep on closing these pop-ups.
If you are frustrated with these pop-ups, Firefox has a built-in option to block pop-ups from websites. So, lets see how we can enable the pop-up blocker option in Firefox.

How To Block Pop-ups In Firefox?
- Click on the ‘FireFox’ button on the top left corner.

Now, you have successfully disabled all websites from opening pop-ups in your Firefox browser.
There are also some additional options to allow pop-ups from some particular websites (if you want/require pop-ups from some websites). To allow pop-ups for some websites,
- Click on the ’Exceptions’ button which is just beside the ‘Block pop-up windows’ option.

Whenever Firefox blocks a pop-up from a website it displays at the top ‘Firefox prevented this site from opening a pop-up window’. Firefox provides you with various additional options to choose from after it has blocked the pop-ups for that website. You can even choose to allow pop-ups for that website from those options.
