Blocking Pop Up Ads

I am in the process of rebuilding my computer after a virus.

Can anyone tell me how to Block Pop Up ads within Fire Fox and how to stop that corner peal ad.

I think the corner-peel ad is only optional if you're a paid subscriber, but for pop-ups in general with modern Firefox it's Tools > Options, choose the Content tab and check the "Block pop-up windows"

My wife just went through the same thing. The old version of Firefox which she had was 3.6.17 which is no longer available. She now uses 4.1. In downloading the add-ons last evening we found that the one which stops the "peel back", Adblocker 0.6.7, does not run on Firefox 4.1

Adblock Plus 1.3.8 and Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon 0.2.5 both run on Firefos 4.1, but neither stops the peel back.
