fark links popup blank

Heh. I may be asking for trouble posting this here. I'm having trouble with the Fark website. In Firefox, when I click any of the links, I get a popup window, but it is blank white, with the word "Stopped" in the status area. Help me see boobies! (It's actually all links, not just a couple that have been "farked" by a traffic spike).

I'm running a few extensions: del.icio.us, SpellBound, Greasemonkey, ChromEdit, and MediaPlayerConnectivity.

Same problem with Safari or another browser? Fark has boobies?

Have you tried starting Firefox in safe mode? Does it work? If so, it's an extension. If not, it's something else.

You don't have a popup disabler on, do you? There's an automatic popup blocker in Firefox Preferences/Web Features. Is it just fark or any site with popups? Hmm...you're getting the actual popup window, so I don't think that is turned on. Empty cache, restart, check safe mode, disable extensions, then I'm out of my league!

Have you tried copy and pasting the redirect links (like, say, this SFW one) to another window? Do other links with target="_blank" give you problems?

I haven't noticed any issues with any other sites. I just rolled into work but I'll try those suggestions when I get home. Thanks!

You just rolled into work? Could it be the the workplace admin has installed something on the network that is blocking certain non-work related sites? I am just shooting in the dark here.
