    Preventing the newfangled popups in Firefox?

    I'm using the latest version of FF in Win 8 64-bit. I have the FF pop-up blocker enabled and also the ad-block extension. But I'm still getting these annoying pop-ups that slide in from the sides or top or bottom of the screen and hover, asking for opinions or ratings or blah-blah. Is there any way to get rid of these darn things? Thanks.
