Is There A Way To Block Pop-Up Windows And Messages Like Advertisements That Occur With Linux Ubuntu V11.10 64-Bit's Compliant Web Browsers?

Hello. I have a question regarding Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit operating system.

Is there a way to block pop-up windows and messages like advertisements and that occur in Linux Ubuntu v11.10 64-bit's compliant web browsers? I am getting numerous ads at times in the form of smaller sized individual windows that often pop-up when I open another weblink. I am using Mozilla's Linux/Debian/Ubuntu's version of Firefox and Google's Linux/Debian/Ubuntu's version of Chrome.

My questions applicable to this issue – please answer:

1. Is there a setting inherent to the web browser itself  (evident or hidden) to Mozilla's Linux Ubuntu's version of Firefox and Google Chrome's Linux Ubuntu's version of Chrome that can block these annoying pop-up windows and messages? If so, please explain for each web browser. If you have a great weblink, please provide that as well.  

2. Is there some trusted repository pop-up blocker program or third party program either in Ubuntu Software Center or one that can be manually downloaded as safe and reliable to install as well? If so, please explain its installment procedures if the weblink does a poor job to provide this; and the relative features and functions of the pop-up blocker program, again if the weblink does a poor job to explain this? Weblinks again would be great here too.

Please reply.

Thank you!

@ torakeshb & anyone:

Hello. Nice to meet you, torakeshb. Thank you for your comment.

I appreciate your comments, however I find that your weblinks for both web browsers indicate how to 'disable' the pop-up windows. Actually I am looking for information 'to greater increase' my already enabled pop-up windows to prevent any further pop-up windows. At this time, my pop-up windows randomly happen where I need *more* pop-up protection -- for both web browsers.

If you can help me with 'greater' pop-up protection for both web browsers like an additional program, this will be much appreciated.

Let me add that I am not looking for actually individual block/blacklisting website/webpage capability. This can be time consuming and indefinite to effectively constrain pop-ups. A effectively and comprehensive pop-up database built into the program is much desired.  

Please reply.

Thank you!

The much better way is to have chrome/firefox add-on installed. You can do that by going to extensions/addon in firefox & chrome and search for adblock
