Firefox 34.0.5 is blocking "necessary" popups & preventing me from viewing/using several sites, even though I've un- checked the box, "Block Popups".

Hi! I've been having an unusual problem relating to, what I was told is the "built-in popup blocker" in Firefox, & that there's an about:config setting(s) that I need to change. Here are the problems I've been having: 1. When I try to place an order online I can't use Firefox, (& I'm forced to use the nasty old IE), because when I click on certain items I don't get the small drop-down menu that allows me to choose the flavor/size/quantity. (e.g. My dog's chew bones come in 4 flavors, but when I click on the bones I want I don't get the little drop-down menu that shows the flavors; I'm unable to continue placing the order because the site needs to know what flavor I want to order) 2. There are 5 sites showing streaming media of "nest-cams" of Bald Eagles; Peregrine Falcons & various other wildlife that I view daily. One site is http://www.wildearth.tv/cam/pittsburgh-bald-eagles; however, I can't view the site on my PC because this site, (& the other 4 as well), rely on "pop-up ads" for revenue, & if you have a free account rather than a paid subscription, the pop-up ads are just part of the viewing experience on the site. I was told by one of the Moderators that Firefox has a 'built-in' pop-up blocker, (not one that's added on as an extension/add-on/plugin), & that there's an about:config setting(s) that I need to change so I'm able to view my nest-cams on their sites. ***IMPORTANT INFORMATION*** If I go to any of the 5 'problem' sites using my iPad...sitting only inches away from my PC...using the same Internet connection...I can watch these sites perfectly!! Weird, huh?!?! So, I was told I need to go to about:config & make adjustment(s), but I don't want to screw anything up! I went there & looked through everything & there are several lines containing the word "pop-up", so I need the advice of someone who knows what to do. Tada...so her I am bothering you nice people! I'm running Windows 8.1 & using Firefox 34.0.5, (this is the device that won't let me view the nest cams); my iPad is new, v.8, (I think)..& I can & do watch any site I want, (including the 5 'problem' sites any time I want...the picture is too tiny for regular viewing & I can't take screenshots for the detailed records I keep, or I'd just use my iPad all the time). I have the box in Tools>Options UN-checked for 'Block Pop-up Windows', & I do NOT have any other pop-up blocker enabled in Firefox. I hope I gave enough info, but if you need to know anything else, just ask. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, & thanks in advance for any suggestions/instructions you may provide. I really need to be able to access these 5 sites using my PC because the nest-cams have been turned on for the 2015 Season & I'm desperate to get this matter resolved. It won't be long till there are eggs being laid & I have to be ready!  :) Thanks a bunch! Nuts4Mutts  :)

I had a website popup the other day about 'security warning my comp needed cleaned, etc.' Naturally I did not click on anything but I also could not delete it off my screen. So I called Kaspersky Security & told them, which they then shut off my protection to get rid of it. After when I tried to get into my online banking, they let me sign in but then I got a screen saying "This connection is Untrusted. You have asked Firefox to connect securely to 'online1.openbank.com' but we can't confirm your connection is secure" Then it continues with "Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted ID to prove you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified." I called Kaspersky back today (12/4) & told them all this. They walked me through what to do & told me to shut my comp down & then turn back on and it seemed to be fixed, I could get into my bank's site & pay some bills. However, once done I realized I needed to go back in, but after I got the web page & signed in the above message appeared again & I now can't get back into my bank. Would someone Please Please help me to figure out what happened?? Thank You.

The operating system for my desktop is Windows XP. My browser is Firefox Portable Edition using Google as the search engine. Recently, I got a popup in the middle of the screen asking me if I wanted to download Security and Stability updates for Firefox 35.0.1. I do not know the relationship between Firefox 35.0.1 and Firefox Portable Edition. The question is should I install the updates for Firefox 35.0.1 on my Firefox Portable Edition from the popup ?

(1.) FF does not remember my settings for Ghostery & PrivacyFix each morning. I have to re-set it each day. Also mu installed Plugins disappear. Have seen this behavior for 2 days now. (2.) Also I have downloaded and installed Colorful Tabs more than 8 times, and that extension never shows itself, or is in the Tools, tab or under the Customize Tab. FF's tabs are too light colored for these old eyes to pick out easily. Many of my extensions dont show up anymore, though they are the same ones I've used for used, and they pass the Add-On check at your site, with each Version upgrade. (3.) Also each new version of FF takes away my PAID FOR Pin4ever Toolbar. So I immediately downgrade to the version of FF that allowed my toolbar. I have now removed FF as my default browser, because there's just too many problems with it, though I love it because I feel secure when making purchases, etc. Thank you too any one that can help me with these issues. Mellowspirit (PS: Have Advanced System 8 installed. Have noticed they put things on my computer and remove things to make me use their version of whatever. Sneaky company. Will delete tonight, to see if problems fix themselves. Can always reinstall if wrong.)
