There isn't a pop up options menu on android. However, you can turn on/off pop up block by navigating to about:config and searching apz.popups.enabled and setting it to true.

Thank you very much. That works great for turning blocking on and off as a whole. And is not anywhere else that I have found in the help. So very usefull information and I appreciate it. However I have some sites pop ups blocked and some not blocked and one is in the wrong list because big fingers little buttons small android phone. If you could help me find the exception list so I can erase the one I accidentally blocked that would be awesome. Thank you very much for your help so far. It would be nice if it was accessible in the settings but I understand the developers wanted to keep the app small still some Instructions on how to access it in the help file would have been nice.

Do you have "privacy.popups.showBrowserMessage" set to true and "ui.popup.disable_autohide" set to true?

Maybe if you do and navigate to the site you accidentally blocked it'll report it blocked a pop up and you can click the little notification and reverse it? I'm double checking my android device...

Well it's not the site it's the popup to enter my key fob info. I accidentally blocked the popup and now I can not get in I cleared the cache and when that did not work I uninstall/reinstalled the app and still no luck. It's only blocked on this one device but it's the one I take with me everywhere for work so it's an issue. I tried what you said and that did not work. But thanks any how.

Hi Remblie

If you have removed Firefox for Android completely and reinstalled it, you would completely reset the settings - which makes me think this may not be to do with Firefox for Android.

What do you mean by "key fob info"? This might help me to find a solution for you.
