Firefox has a pop-up blocker built in: check Tools > Options > Content.
However, popups can come from other sources, particularly external programs. To rule out the possibility of malware or spyware, try these scanners if you can access them:
HouseCall : http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
Malwarebytes Anti-malware : http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
SUPERAntiSpyware : http://www.superantispyware.com/
Also, disable any nonessential add-ons under Tools > Add-ons (especially Themes and Extensions).
