Pop-ups, those advertising or information windows, ruin your browsing experience on your Firefox browser? It's high time to clean up and offer you a simple solution that requires no expertise and, above all, no waiting time! Let's see how Shelblock anti pop-up blocker helps you to keep your Mozilla Firefox browsing experience fluid from day to day.

Pop-ups on Firefox

Pop-ups are intrusive windows often found on commercial sites, service sites (telephony, streaming...), and even information sites. Subscriptions, special offers, or false alerts that you have "won a grand prize", they are mostly there to make you click, voluntarily or not! The time you lose if you click on these windows without intention, or if you have to close them one by one, can be quickly counted in hours. What if you could get it over with once and for all?

Protecting yourself against pop-ups

Using an algorithm, the Shelblock software detects the creation of these intrusive windows on Firefox and prevents them from opening. In fact, these types of content, often advertising, have a footprint that is recognizable to Shelblock Anti-Advertising. Your Firefox browsing is safe, and you no longer have to fear a page that blocks you or spoils your reading or shopping experience, for example.
