Mozil­la is revamp­ing the pop-up fea­ture for Fire­fox to dis­able Flash and JavaScript pop­ups by default.

Fire­fox can dis­able such pop­ups, but the cur­rent ver­sion has that fea­ture turned off due to con­cerns that it would inter­fere with legit­i­mate pop­up win­dows that some sites use. A man­u­al method of chang­ing the default to block plug-in pop­ups was offered up by the foun­da­tion sev­er­al weeks ago, but now it’s test­ing an add-on patch that auto­mates the chore.
