How do I disable a Pop-up blocker?

Posted

Where do I go to disable the Pop-up blockers, so I can play certain games on Pogo?

URL of affected sites

http://

Chosen solution

You can add an exception for pogo.com, when you get the yellow bar that says a pop-up has been blocked. See Pop-up blocker settings, exceptions and troubleshooting.

To completely disable the pop-up blocker, go to Tools > Options > Content and uncheck Block pop-up windows

On Mac, it's Firefox > Preferences > Content. All the info is in the Pop-up blocker settings, exceptions and troubleshooting article. :-)

I thank you so much Chris for helping with the disabling of pop-up blockers for pogo.com. I have been battling this problem for weeks(even hired someone twice) because I was unable to get into a room when I wanted my own settings. All I needed to do is follow your instructions and it was an easy fix. thanks again for your help. Kim_505

i did all the above. however, after few successful popups, the firefox4 blocks them again, and it seems as i can do nothing, but restart the application. also the message that firefox blocked the popup window shows up just for a split of the second. very annoying. i am using some business application and there everything is based on popups ... any ideas? thanks!

For disabling the feature of pop-up blocker in Firefox, go to the tools menu and click on ‘Options’ followed by the content panel. To disable all the pop-up blockers, uncheck the ‘Block pop-up Window’ box. In order to disable the pop-up blocker for a given set of websites, click on the ‘Exceptions’ and enter the URL of the websites whose pop-up need not be blocked. Close the Window and click ‘OK’.

I have unchecked the "Block pop-up Window" box until the cows come home and it STILL keeps blocking me when I'm trying to work Quicken online! I cannot see any message pop up, just the one telling me firefox is blocking it. It doesn't matter if I have that site "allowed" or not. It doesn't matter if I have no blocking at all!

It doesn't matter if I quit & re-start Firefox! It just keeps disallowing me to work my banking books online and forces me to just quit to get out of the loop!

Please help! How is this possible?

PS - I have also "allowed" *.intuit.com as instructed by intuit. Still doesn't work! ARGH!
