Unwanted pop-ups

I'm using 76RC2 and getting bad pop-ups on this video conversion site.

https://www.converto.io/

To test you'd need to enter a youtube video url
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtU-9EMSYu0

The site uses variatons on the url during conversion s2, s7 etc on http://s3.converto.io/en/download/?id=>>>>>>>>>>>;

I tried siria's popup macro to no avail alas! But then I haven't a clue how to configure it.

The following tweak stops them, I have yet to find out what else it inadvertantly stops. surprised smiley

EDIT: Had to whitelist for browse button to work https://tineye.com/

. . . toggle this Mozilla preference to the desired events:

dom.popup_allowed_events

By default the values are:

change click dblclick mouseup reset submit touchend


I set mine to:

change dblclick reset


The result is no more popups anymore.

But it has a drawback and is that it is too much strict, that blocks even the "browse" buttons/actions in forms. That is the reason that Dorian, the main current developer didn't change it by default. But when there is a problem like this, you can whitelist the site (Tools menu > Privacy > permissions), or slightly change the popup blocker macro to toggle to the preferred values.
