Block all pop-ups by default

Tutorials and Howtos should only relate to Pale Moon, and not to third party applications. e.g.: Don't post a Howto for configuring your firewall.
If you have a question how to do something, you should use one of the support boards, not this board. It is meant for people to document and post instructions.

I use Firefox for the normal work
and Palemoon mostly for play and exploring,
I don't get the pop-ups in FF, only PM

so this popup trick should come in very handy.

Thanks

Press ALT to see menus. Then under Tools –> Options, look for Content and make sure that the first line "Block pop-up windows" is checked. It it is, check for exceptions (i.e. sites that you allow pop ups)
