    so my friend just caught me distracted for a second and bam, I got rickrolled. and not the usual epic rick astley rickroll, no he had to give me the justin bieber version.
    so yeah, sick of it and I want an add-on that's compatible with firefox 4 and protects me at least from the jumping browser windows. the text boxes are already taken care of in 4.0 but the jumping windows aren't.

    If you want to stop it from moving your Firefox window, do the following steps

    1. Click 'Tools' at the top.
    2. After that, click 'Options'.
    3. Go to the 'Content' tab.
    4. Press 'Advanced'.
    5. Uncheck 'Move or resize existing windows".
    6. Press 'OK' and 'OK' another time to exit the window.

    This should prevent the bieberroll from hijacking the Firefox window.

    NoScript should work too; just make sure the site's on the "Forbid" list.
