In Block Pop-Up Windows settings FF doesn't save exclusions.


After restart the list is empty. Windows is fresh installed at home (8) and new enough at work (7)/ Both systems have the same "feature"/ How to make FF save exclusions forever? coz it's very annoying

When using Clear Recent History or when automatically clearing history on closing Firefox, Options > Privacy > Clear history when Firefox closes > Exceptions, DO NOT check "Site Preferences".

Clearing the "Site Preferences" will clear all exceptions including exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, passwords, and software (add-on) installation.
