Vonage and Mozilla: What's their Major Malfunction?

The great thing about having a magazine, newsletter or Web site (and I've got all three!) is you get to complain and people have to listen. Today's beef: Vonage pop-up ads!

One reason I moved to Firefox (besides wanting my kids to think I'm cool) is it promises to reduce pop-ups. And it does, except for those coming from one company -- Vonage. I've got the pop-up blocker active, but to no avail. Vonage just busts on through!

Obviously, the company is purposely bypassing these protections, leading me to launch a one-man boycott of Vonage. I wouldn't buy their phone service if it was free (well, maybe if it was free and they corrected their horrible IP voice quality).

You know what's wild? I never get these pop-ups on IE6!
