Guys, I'm going to drop your browser if you don't fix the pop-up problem. And don't tell me to go disable my pop-up blocker in preferences or I leave now.

Hi johnnyreck, is this in a window that is newly opening, or was the window already open, you clicked a link or button to go to the next step, and the title bar just is stuck on "Loading..."?

You can prevent sites from removing the toolbar controls in popup windows by changing a setting. This could be helpful so you can use the Stop/Reload button, and to see whether any add-on buttons are relevant. Here's how to change that setting:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste open_feat and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar preference to switch the value from false to true -- now all new popup windows should have the full main toolbar

Hello johnnyreck,

When I first read the header of your question, I was tempted to say "Don't let the door hit you .... ", but that wouln't be nice and definitely not helpful. I'm going to ask you instead : Would you please let us know what exactly the pop-up problem is that you want us to fix ? Like : What kind of pop-ups ? Do they appear on every page, specific pages? Any information that you can give us about the problem will be welcome.

In anticipation I will give you this article to take a look at :

hahahahahaha! I would too! I'm an online student and using firefox and little things like the "rubric" pop up and do nothing. I know this because I tried safari and they don't pop-up. I've stripped Firefox to the bare minumum and still it is blocking that part of the schools virtual world. SO yes, it's frustrating. And I read it still not solvable. Does this help in a getting a solution my friend?

Can you revise the heading to say "Pop up problem"? I sound like a dick. And to be honest I hit the return key and just went with it. Please change if you can. Thanks!

They (whatever "they" are) pop-up when you use Safari, but no pop-ups when you use Firefox  ?

So sorry. Firefox is still blocking pop-ups. Specifically an online school site. Chrome and Safari both DO NOT block this specific pop-up. Firefox IS BLOCKING pop ups no matter what setting it's on. I hope thats better. john

Ahhh, you want to see pop-ups - I was under the impresion that you wanted them blocked (my bad .... )

Now (unless I'm misconstruing your last post), if this is just on one particular page, would you do this please :

When you're on that site, click on the 'i' in a circle, next to the padlock at the left side of the address bar.

Then click on the little black arrow on the dropdown (next to 'Connection') and then on "More Information", which will take you to "Page Info".

Click on the 'Permissions" tab and scroll down to "Open Pop-up Windows". Uncheck "Use Default" and check "Allow".

Then close and restart Firefox.

If, once again, this is not what you're talking about, then I can only hope that someone else will come to your rescue .....

I've been looking at this "Rubric" thingy, and I wonder : could it be that you need to look at your content blocking settings ?

You should definately see "Open Pop-up Windows" and "Allow" and click on it.

(gotta go for about an hour)

Told him that I don't have a clue what's going on here and asked him to please come to your rescue .....

Hi johnnyreck, is this in a window that is newly opening, or was the window already open, you clicked a link or button to go to the next step, and the title bar just is stuck on "Loading..."?

You can prevent sites from removing the toolbar controls in popup windows by changing a setting. This could be helpful so you can use the Stop/Reload button, and to see whether any add-on buttons are relevant. Here's how to change that setting:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste open_feat and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar preference to switch the value from false to true -- now all new popup windows should have the full main toolbar

SOLVED! Hey there! I wanted to let you know I finally got it to work. After you told me to disable the "toolbar" it didn't work. So I disabled the "menubar" and add-ons. It finally worked. Pops into a new window and loads. Now I can work with the add-ons no problem.

I want to thank you guys for helping resolve this issue. I hope it reaches others—I just wish we could change the title to "pop-up problem solution". something like that. I give you permission. Great job in responding so quickly. Have a great week. Cheers
