Links that open in new windows do not work in Firefox, even when I disable pop-up blocker.
Any links that open as new windows or pop-ups will not work in Firefox, even when I disable pop-up blocker. For example in Gmail I can click a person's e-mail as a hyperlink and it is supposed to open a new e-mail message to that address in a separate window. However, when I try it in Firefox, nothing happens, the window won't open. No link that operates this way will work. I have tried disabling pop-up blocker but the problem still happens.
Every time Firefox opened

Are you sure that you don't have another pop-up blocker installed, like a pop-up blocker that is part of a security suite?
Also,do you have that problem when running in the Firefox SafeMode? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode Don't select anything right now, just use "Continue in SafeMode."
This site is the culprit for me every time I try to visit my granddaughter's website..... this thing pops up even when I tell Firefox to block them, and not allow any cookies.... firefox cleans out my request and it pops up again. That's a major bug in my book. Here try it yourself and see if it happens for you. Try going here.... http://nvesgagi.webs.com/ Watch this one invade... http://smarthealthmart.com/
