Mozilla Is Considering Blocking In-Page Pop-Ups In Firefox

Mozilla is collecting a dataset of in-page pop-ups in order to automatically block them in Firefox. In-page pop-ups are pop-ups that show pages at different times, such as when loading the website, scrolling, inactivity or opening a tab.

Experiments are now being done with a pop-up blocker to close these pop-ups automatically. For this Mozilla is working on a collection of such pop-ups. Internet users can report this via this page . The dataset is only needed to train the pop-up blocker. The plan is to be able to block them automatically without having a complete blocklist. Whether the feature also comes is still unclear. Firefox developer Ehsan Akhgari says on Twitter that Mozilla is exploring it as a possible Firefox feature.
