1. Start Firefox 2. Click on Tools 3. Click on Options

Now Options window will be opened. 4. Click on Content tab

5. Check Block POP-UP Windows to enable POP-UP blocker in Firefox

Click 'exceptions' to add sites to allow pop-ups on.

If you want to disable POP-UP blocker in Firefox ,just uncheck the check box.

My problem is with pop-ups in Ancestry.com. I have un-checked pop-up blocker and still no desired pop-ups. It appears that the pop-up windows I'm trying to get are driven by javascript. I've tried enabling everything having to do with javascript and still nothing.

I reluctantly started Internet Explorer, and found that those pop-ups work just fine.

What else can I look for?
