Pop up blocker
I have been a user of a particular website for awhile now. it is thingiverse.com . This website continually tells me that I need to disable my pop-up blocker in order to download a file from their website. 1. I DO want to download from their site. 2. I have not got the pop up blocker enabled on firefox 3. I do not have another pop up blocker enabled on my computer. 4. If I use a Microsoft Edge to get on the web, I can download from that website. 5. I have tried to actually enable pop up blockers on firefox and then say the pop ups are fine on thingiverse.com and that doesnt work either
6. I don't want to use a different browser to go on that website but can't figure out what to do.
Please offer any kind of insight you may have.
Thanks so much.

Firefox forum isn't in the business of giving advice which ad/popup blocker to use as not all Addons will work for all site and some could require looking at it settings to get it to work. So this is why one should look at the Firefox Addon page and read the users reviews to see which one will work for them.
Have you tried using the Page Info window? While on the site, ctl+i will open the Page Info window. Go to its Permissions tab and for Open pop-up windows select Allow.
Just tried this Terry. It shows that pop up are allowed. clicked out of default, selected allow manually and still getting the notification to disable pop up blockers. Thanks

I suppose it's possible that you have a policies.json file. Enter about:policies in the address bar to check that.
