According to gorhill and the documentation it's seem to be a legitimate popup.

Because Firefox supports the isTrusted property [1], which is used to know if the popup is legitimate or not. In this case, the popup is legitimate because the URL of the big blue button is the same as the URL of the popup, so there are no surprises: the URL of the popup is the same as the URL of the clicked link.

The browsers based on Chromium did not support this property. I'm looking at the documentation on MDN [1], and apparently the isTrusted property is now supported since Chromium 46. I'd have to revise the code.
