Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar Under Content turn on Block pop-up windows. To its right, press Exceptions. List any sites that you do not want pop-ups to be blocked.

In the left panel, you should see :
Privacy Search Content Applications Privacy Security Sync Advanced

You should see a special icon on the location/address bar or see a notification bar when a pop-up is blocked. You can click this icon to see what is blocked and you should also have to choice to allow these blocked pop-ups.

Also see this article - especially the section Pop-up blocker settings

If, however, you're talking about a pop-up blocker add-on : please, let us know.
