Question

Missing option to show blocked popup in yellow notification bar

I have popups blocked by default. But banks etc. occasionally like to show important info in popup windows. Bank web sites usually give you one chance so adding a site exception is little help

I use FF v18. When a popup is blocked I see the yellow notification bar across the top of the screen. If I click the bar I see a few options, like add the site to the exception list. I do NOT see the option that was once there several versions ago, an option that showed the URL of the popup. If that option was clicked it opened the popup.

This was a lifesaver!! How do I get it back??

This Mozilla help document talks about the show popup option that I want to see in the yellow notification bar. But the doc is odd about this one issue, the option text is shown in parentheses only and no text mentions it:

This same question was asked recently but nobody gave a solid answer:

My FF has this setting

privacy.popups.usecustom = true
