Microsoft's Service Pack 2 for XP will focus on e-mail security, memory protection, browsing security, and network protection. One default SP2 will have for Internet Explorer is a pop-up blocker.

A test version of SP 2 called Release Candidate 1 (RC1) has undergone beta-testing and will be available Friday via a technical preview program. Feedback is wanted before Microsoft rolls out a Release Candidate 2 version.

The final release of SP2 will be sometime before the middle of this year. Pop-up blocking is already on RC1 which is meant for IT professionals to test. Microsoft says that average consumers won't be asked to download this preliminary version.

I never said it was good, I just said it has it.

Popup blocker lets you surf the web without intrusion. Advanced popup blocker notifies you when popups are blocked. You can also block pop-ups on a site per site basis.

Popup Blocking
Firefox stops annoying popup windows dead in their tracks. Experience the web as it was supposed to be - peaceful, convenient, accessible.
You can try this

I use Norton internet security and I never see pop-ups.

I have never had any popup issues using mozilla firefox version .8, or many of the previous versions (whatever they may have been called at the time)

Also let me block/allow images and popups on a site specific basis

Might I sugest your mozilla pop-up blocker has been dissabled. Or maybe you have some ad ware running. Maybe is was dissabled by some nasty malware.
