I've just installed No Script which detects the script they are running and allows me to selectively block scripts
I went to that site and don't see any surveys. I went to the comment page where there was a survey on dog/cat fur. I clicked on it and the survey window popped up. These are my pop up settings in about:config

My set up is similar (network.hosts.pop_server) is an email thing not a popup thing
My settings are all default i.e the two 'false' values are set to 'true'
Still I get no popups
