    Not in Firefox itself but you can use a extension called NoScript

    Advanced Javascript settings have existed since forever in Firefox. In FF 22 and lower you could access them via the menu, but since FF 23 you'll have to pass by about:config (type it in the adress bar).
    Here are some JS settings that you can modify :
    dom. disable_window_open_feature. * (

    If you don't like messing with about:config, you can get the same functionality as previous versions of FF by using this add-on :
