I’m not kidding! Do not click this link. Just don’t do it. I can’t emphasize this enough:
Now, how many of you clicked it without reading the rest of the post? Fess up! LOL Every time someone posts something like this, I fucking click that shit and then regret it. It’s irresistible, isn’t it?
This thing officially sucks. It sucks badly, and it is just a matter of time before someone exploits it. Come on Mozilla! Can we get some of that “10 Fucking Days” magic going on here?
Anyway, here is a workaround that works with Firefox 18.104.22.168 on Windows XP:
- Hit the Windows key to bring back your task bar
- Double click on the FF entry in the task bar to minimize it and maximize it
- This should bring the browser window into foreground. You can now finish whatever you wanted to do, and close the browser to get rid of the popup.
It worked for me. Your millage may vary.
Btw, if for some reason you can’t click out of the popup to see the article here is the safe link.
