First check that the popup blocker in Firefox is on,
Tools / Options / Content tick the box next to "Block Popup Windows".

It's also possible that they are Messenger popups and not browser popups, so it could be worth using Shoot the messenger click here.

From Tools>Options>Content tab, has Block Popups been disabled?

Great minds thing alike...:-)

By the way, Firefox doesn't block EVERY popup - just about 98 per cent of them.

these pop ups are not related to the web sites. when i go on a hsbc i still get them. when i go onto any web site and even when i have not got any windows open they still pop up
