Prevent pop-ups from opening in the first place

On 2011-10-03, pop-up “blocking” was added to Adblock Plus. In fact, pop-ups still open; Adblock Plus can only automatically close them afterwards. Preventing pop-ups from opening requires another add-on, Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon.

What to change

Adblock Plus should prevent pop-ups from opening altogether, i.e. actually block them.

  • Resolution set to rejected
  • Status changed from new to closed

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
