comment How to block a particular pop-up window from opening?
I don't understand why you insist on that. I am not accepting an answer until I think it actually answered my question. As I wrote, I am still evaluating the suggested solutions. did upvote the two answers to show that they both work (for now, at least).

I am currently using the NoScript. It has its annoyances, but I am slowly learning to live with it. Then, I'll get back to the add-on one. This will take time, and if I come to a definitive conclusion that one of them remains on my browser, I'll select the answer. Be patient. Thanks.

Thanks, more aggressive than the other solution, but seem to be doing the job. Requires tweaking on-the-fly to unblock leggit page components.

Thanks. Seems to work after some tweaking. let's see if it stands the test of time, and if it does not "overdo" its job.

comment What are the Windows A: and B: drives used for?
@echolab - it is hard to tell exactly, but it looks to me more like a spreadsheet than a drafting/design software. Or, is it that Amstrad had a spreadsheet named "Autocad"?

comment Can't run Vimdiff (7.4) on Windows 7
Well, the startup screen and :intro show me the same info (that is, just "7.4"). :version shows "7.4" and elaborates on the compilation time. No patch version number. Your 2nd comment may explain why it is so. It is compiled by mool(at)tororo, which I assume refers to Mr. Moolner.

comment Can I use a DLNA BluRay player as an external BD drive for my Windows 7 laptop?
@Ramhound - Using VLC 2.0.5, I turned on the BD Player (Samsung F5700, w/ DLNA), had a BD movie in and opened the UPnP tab in VLC. I see my laptop in the list, but no sign for the player. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
