Ublock Origin ask to allow pop ups

I just download Firefox 72.0.1 (64-bit) on a new computer. It automatically included ublock origin 1.24.2 There are many sites where you actually want pop ups (bank statements, downloads, etc.) On my other computers with Firefox, ublock shows a bar at the top of the browser and gives me the option to say- No pop up, allow once only, or always allow for this site. I didn't have to change any settings to have this happen. However, on this newly downloaded version it doesn't do that and it's very frustrating and cumbersome to use. Basically, I have to know that the site wants to pop up a new screen, turn off ublock, and then remember to turn it back on. I have looked all through the ublock and firefox settings to figure out how to do this and can't see where to make this bar show. Very frustrating! Any tips for fixing this? Or, other, better pop up blockers to use?

When I type in an address in the search bar Firefox intermittently serves up a blank page and attempts to download the page as a file. This only seems to happen when I omit typing in www. in an address and doesn't seem to happen when the address is in my recent history and Firefox autocompletes it.

My internet connection is fine and this is not happening in other browsers.

I was just updated to 72.0.1

Then, when I tried to login to roboform I was told I had to update. I did that (now have 8.2.2 (64-bit) Same problem, I am told I must upgrade (already did that). The update itself was interesting. I had to delete the addon from firefox and then restart firefox before I was able to download that latest roboform

Thoughts?

Weird thing that just recently started happening to me; I usually have audacity as my default program to open downloaded mp3 files from firefox, but it's been giving me trouble. Whenever I try to open up the file, audacity gives me numerous error messages, each error message is that audacity is looking in my System32 folder for a file corresponding to each letter in the filename of what i downloaded (ex: E.mp3, X.mp3, A.mp3, M.mp3, P.mp3, L.mp3, E.mp3.) Opening the files up in AIMP works fine. Opening the files in audacity from the folder works fine too.

Running on windows 10, firefox version 72.

It seems to happen at random, but when I go to any website (ex. eBay, YouTube), sometimes the screen goes dim and there are two options: Continue and X.

I use an ad blocker, so it might be that some ad partially got somewhat past the ad blocking system, but the ad itself didn't get through.

I have the Firefox VPN, but I wasn't using it at the time this image was taken.

It only seems to happen on Firefox.

Apart from the ad blocker thing, I don't know what could be causing the problem.

I would appreciate it if anyone else has seen this before, or could help me find the cause of it.

I have send some tabs "for further reading" to device I believe has some name like "Firefox on office computer" and received none of them, but none of them was received. So I checked settings and actual name is "Firefox on localhost", that occured I think after upgrade. Both devices are displayed as possible targets, and account page says that "Firefox on office computer" seen last time long time ago. How can I get list of tabs waiting to be opened on this dead instance?

I turned my work laptop on this morning and when I opened Firefox it made me create a new profile. There was no other option in order to continue. Once I did all of my saved logins, passwords and bookmarks were gone. As this is a work laptop I just lost a ton of links to important sites I use on a daily basis. How can I revert and get those back and why were they deleted in the first place?
