Pop Up Blockers

PREREQUISITES: I am NOT saying this to cause an argument. These are my personal experiences, and have brought me to question browser pop up blockers.

Hi there everyone. I have IE7 and Firefox 2, and I run them simoultaneously at times (however I usually just use IE7). I have noticed on two occasions that pop-ups will come thru in Firefox that wont in IE7 - in fact, I have never had a bad pop-up on IE7.

The sites are:

Both of them have a pop-up realted to and some smiley central zwinky thing. No pop ups in IE7, both pop up in Firefox. As far as I know Firefox is latest updates, and IE7 is obviously contemporary.

Just wonderin... Is Firefox all its really cracked up to be?
