Firefox, block pop-ups from only certain sites

In Mozilla Firefox, there is the option to block pop-ups on all sites, except for specific ones in which it is blocked. I need it to work as a blacklist instead. Pop-ups allowed on all sites, except for specific ones in which it is blocked.

Try the Adblock extension for Firefox:

Adblock Plus is even better.

Go with Adblock Plus and/or NoScript. I haven't seen an unwanted popup in ages.
