Sorry but the new version doesn't block the popups on www.goldesel.6x.to (the only new "functions" are translations into several languages, as stated in the changelog)...
Yes popups only works by editing some hidden parameters in Firefox, and I don't think there is one for this kind of popups yet, unfortunately :( However, the NoScript extension or our hosts file
can solve your problem (with my hosts file, I don't see the popup on www.goldesel.6x.to).
Note : Yes popups does block most of what you call *js popups, since most popups are generated by js ;)
PS : you can already download the latest version, on Filefront.
