Question: Has anyone had any trouble concerning the PopUp ad on the Survey ?

Lately, when I sign in (under Fire Fox, newest upgrade) the Survey pops up and runs a script that makes it impossible for me to sign on (it keeps taking the FOCUS off the text input box). I have to cancel it, many times I have to cancel it 3 or more times to get it to go away.

Is this just me, or have others gotten this also...?

UPDATE: Here is a screen shot of the survey I mean...

. In Firefox, go to Tools:Options:Content and make sure "Block pop-up windows" is checked. Make sure is NOT in the exception list. . If that's not a real pop-up window, ABP should do the job. Or you can use your HOSTS file or firewall to block

Block pop up windows was checked when I looked......there are no exceptions all should be blocked. :-(
. Then I'm guessing that it is NOT a pop-up window; it's something disguised as a pop-up. ABP will probably do the job.

We shall see then, I have it installed, and have restarted FF. . .

what survey?

It offers from a small popup, when one comes into Instructables initially....before signing in and sometimes when signing out. I have to delete it 3 or 4 times to get rid of it, and leaving it interferes with posting *sigh*
Hi, Goodhart. If you block popups unconditionally (remove I'bles from the "exceptions" list if necessary), then FF will just give you a yellow banner telling you it blocked a popup. You can choose to access it or not from the corresponding little "preferences" button.

FF seems to be set to block all popups, no I am guessing this is outside that realm .
