Pop Ups Being Blocked even though I have turned off Pop Up Blocking in Firefox I don't have any extensions blocking popups I don't have any permissions blocking popups. I'm using latest version of Mozilla, just updated today. I'm about ready to delete Mozilla and use something else. In fact, I have to use other browsers just to get my bank reports, etc. How frustrating!

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Just to put my 2 cents in.

I had the same problem too.

I got around it this way:

Privacy & Security: Scroll down to this: Send websites a “Do Not Track” signal that you don’t want to be tracked

Changed it from ALWAYS to Only when Firefox is set to block known trackers.

That fixed it for me.
