http://www.popuptest.com/popuptest6.html
and
http://www.popuptest.com/popuptest8.html


(dropdown and sticky)

how to add support for these using filters? o RegExp ?

that site allows you to test many popups, so far with or without adblock extension firefox 1pr blocked the same ones and allowed the same ones.
so i see not much use for adblock then :S

i got it coz someone told me i could get rid of those, but i cant find anything anywhere that tells me how, so far i have managed to block them partially and just for that site, but there are so many other sites that have those, and just adding each one of those sites is as annoying as the adds themselves.

Adblock can block anything that is loaded from an external URL, but those popups are produced by scripts embedded in the page itself. There is simply nothing there for Adblock to block.

Firefox's popup blocker can only handle "real" popups, that is popups which consists of entirely new browser windows, and the popups you mentioned does not.

Well for popup6, just make sure you have a good adblock filter, i mean cmon, the sticky image's actual name is popup.gif. the second one you can block but this wouldnt really block anyother kind of popup but ill tell you how to block it anyhow. In userContent.css add this code:
Code:
*[id="dropin"] {
        display: none !important;
}

Blocking popup.gif, or even just popup (although that's a bad idea, since that will cause false positives every time you search google for anything related to popups or popup blocking) would work for that specific page, but a real ad like that wouldn't be so considerate in their choice of names. Popup6 is the same basic concept as popup8, it merely uses a different ID, and positioning.
Adding
Code:
*[id="adFloater"] {
        display: none !important;
}
To the userContent.css would probably block it. The problem with both popup6 and popup8 is that they are layer based popups.

I was running tests on another test site, and found several types that sneak through both firefox's built in blocker, and adblock:
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test2.html <-time delay
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test6.html <-popunder (only 1 of the 2, no way to tell which one)
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test12.html <-layer
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test13.html <-flash
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test20.html <-delayed
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test21.html <-bookmark (not a true popup, probably no way adblock can stop it)
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test24.html <-JS error handlers

These 2 I need someone else to test. I don't know if they sneak through or not, because I don't have java nor real player installed.
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test25.html <-unknown, java not installed
http://www.kephyr.com/popupkillertest/test/test22.html <-unknown, real player not installed

Firefox's internal popup blocker has been improved after 1.0PR, and the upcoming 1.0RC1 should work better. Using the latest nightly several of those you mentioned are blocked.

Bug 253831 is for popups that defeat the Firefox popup blocker. Don't spam that bug, especially if you are not using the latest nightly build.

But this forum isn't exactly the place to discuss Firefox.
