My preferences allow pop-ups and yet when I try to generate a letterfrom an online database I'm using for work, FifreFox "prevents po-ups from this site" Why?
I need to access an online database to generate letters for an assigned project. I click on the appropriate link to generate letters, the file is conveyed to my downloads, and I open it using Adobe to create a pdf. This worked fine for the first 5 letters. When I tried to generate the 6th, a yellow banner appeared informing me that "FireFox prevented this site from opening a pop-up window" which prevented me from getting the letter into downloads to open in Adobe. Even though I don't have the pop-up blocker on, I clicked on preferences and found the site in question already listed as allowed. Why is this happening? How can I continue my work?
