Firefox 4 pop-up problems

I recently upgrated from Firefox 3.6 to Firefox 4.

It used to block pop-ups, but I still had what I believe is called pop-unders. These pages would be under the main site that I was on, so I wouldn't actually see them until I close the main page, and they wouldn't bother me. Also since I have a mac I could just close them all at once.

Now with Firefox 4 it still blocks some pop-ups, but those the pop-unders now appear on the screen, and not below the main site anymore, so I have to close them before I can surf on.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? I've tried Preferences > Content > Block pop-ups but there are no exceptions listed.

AdBlock Plus. Kills 99.99999% of irritating ads! Well, 100% actually, but that sounds less cool. ;)

Wow thanks that's pretty cool. Just seems silly that Firefox 4 is actually a step back from the version before

That's one way of looking at it, yes. Another is that it sticks to being a stable and usable browser and lets the user decide how he/she should manage content. :)
