Windows 10: HELP - Firefox and Windows 10
I'm not sure what kind of links you're clicking on to cause these pop-ups, but, here's a couple more settings you could experiment with:
browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction, set to 0,
(this will open the links in a new tab instead of a new window)
privacy.popups.disable_from_plugins, set to 3
Also, check pop settings in Content Settings
Yes I do use a popup blocker to stop advertisements - but I am not trying to stop pop ups - I am trying to stop a desired pop up from opening multiple identical (unwanted) windows. I want one not 12
From reading through this whole thread it sounds to me like it could be a mouse problem. Check the batteries if it is a wireless mouse and check the driver to see if it is up to date.
To me it sounds like the particular sites you are visiting that can cause this unless it happens everywhere, the unwanted pop ups as AB Plus is not even helping.
Like I said - It happens more on one particular site but still on other sites - but so what? It is a particular phenomenon where I desire to open 1 window and get 12-20. This only began after I installed windows 10. (I dont think my laptap mouse (touchpad) has batteries to check!) Therefore my best guess is that it is a bug reacting between firefox and windows 10.
Can you post the exact link and location in the link where this is happening?
I'd like to try to replicate what is happening.
I sent a screen capture of what it looks like. It does NOT happen all the time. It happens on different sites irregularly. I have not noticed this happening on non-Israeli sites. It may be happening due to a "hanging" effect. (And this was in fact a suggestion by another help group) Where I click on the desired link but since it may not react immediately, I may click again once or even twice - but then it opens 12-20 windows - not one or two or three. I think it is significant that this ONLY began after I installed windows 10 from the previous version.
Here is one of the sites that the combination of Windows 10 and firefox produces the annoying problem of multiple identical unwanted pop-ups:
When your information is added and you click on "connect" it is to open one advertisement - which you close revealing the chat interface. Sometimes this opens 20 identical adds which need to be closed.
Here is also a screen capture of the main screen: (you can click on "change to English" in case you don't understand Hebrew )
I use Firefox the page works o.k. for me. Each time i attempted to connect i received a different popup window not tabs and not more then one window each attempt. So mine opened in a new browser windows not tab or multiple tabs.
As I said - it happens on that site quite rarely - perhaps one in 10 times I try to open it.
