Is there a way to disable those annoying popups whenever your mouse hovers over certain areas?

Do you mean tooltips?  There are only a few settings for tooltips for 
specific elements, which you can find by searching for tooltip in 
about:config.  If you want them gone totally, I think you have to 
configure the operating system to disable them.

There are three distinct tooltips that I frequently encounter.  Each
requires a different way to disable it.

For tooltips on tabs:

1.  Enter <about:config> in the Address Bar.

2.  If you get a warning popup, dismiss it.

3.  Enter browser.tabs.tooltippreview.enable in the search area.

4.  Select the line for browser.tabs.tooltippreview.enable.

5.  Right-click and select Toggle.

For tooltips on the display of Web pages:

1.  On the SeaMonkey menu bar, select [Edit > Preferences].

2.  On the left side of the Preference window under Category, select
Appearance.

3.  On the Appearance pane, clear the checkmark in the checkbox for Show
Tooltips.  (To clear it, merely click on the checkbox.)

4.  Select the OK button.

HOWEVER, I do NOT recommend disabling tooltips on the display of Web
pages.  For links to other Web pages, they often give more detail about
the linked page before you select it.  For images, they often describe
the image.  I use them on my Web pages to indicate my copyright notices
for images I created; I also use them to warn users that selecting a
link on one of my Web pages will open a new tab or browser window
without leaving the current page.

BEFORE viewing Web pages at Wikipedia:

1.  On the SeaMonkey menu bar, select [Edit > Preferences].

2.  On the left side of the Preference window under Category, select
[Advanced > Scripts & Plugins].

3.  On the Scripts & Plugins pane, clear the checkmark in the checkbox
for Browser directly under "Enable JavaScript for".

4.  Select the OK button.

NOTE:  Remember to restore the checkmark when you are through with
Wikipedia.  Other Web sites might not display correctly if JavaScript
remains disabled.  Also, this does not work on the current Wikipedia
page if you do it after you have loaded that page; if you leave that
page and then return to it, however, this should work.

Trump claims he is the "law and order" President.  Then, he
breaks the law by using copyrighted music at his rallies
without permission from the copyright owners.

Thanks, I appreciate the help.
