That is *just* what I would call a popup; it's exactly what 
Firefox's popup blocker blocks. First time it happened 
the popup blocker called my attention to it; I allowed it
and didn't much like what I saw. I got it with 
Linux/Firefox and Linux/Chrome, but as you say, not 
consistently. There are a number of possible explanations 
for that, but it would take a fair amount of digging 
to figure which one is the right one. 

But again, it's the sort of thing that tends to make me 
avoid a site.
