I'll talk to my relative about that. I don't think my relative will be keen on the idea of changing their email address, especially since that address has been used for many years and is tied with many important and not-so-important things.

Family member gets it at least twice a week from Yahoo News (Slow computer, and has Yahoo set as homepage, so before the adblocker is loaded this sometimes gets loaded first. I finally put a "new page" as the first page when opening Firefox to allow the adblocker to load by the time they get to it). It's super hard to block as a domain/site because it uses random servers/domains that are only temporary, so if you get it and block it, you can still get it again from another server/domain.
From quite a while back, I set my relative's homepage to DuckDuckGo. However, I never got around to installing a adblocker. I'll see if I can do it sometime tomorrow.

It seems like a very dangerous and persistent pop-up. I sure hope that it will be able to block it without using a script.
