Any links that open as new windows or pop-ups will not work in Firefox, even when I disable pop-up blocker. For example in Gmail I can click a person's e-mail as a hyperlink and it is supposed to open a new e-mail message to that address in a separate window. However, when I try it in Firefox, nothing happens, the window won't open. No link that operates this way will work. I have tried disabling pop-up blocker but the problem still happens.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Are you sure that you don't have another pop-up blocker installed, like a pop-up blocker that is part of a security suite?

Also,do you have that problem when running in the Firefox SafeMode? Don't select anything right now, just use "Continue in SafeMode."

If not, see this:

This site is the culprit for me every time I try to visit my granddaughter's website..... this thing pops up even when I tell Firefox to block them, and not allow any cookies.... firefox cleans out my request and it pops up again. That's a major bug in my book. Here try it yourself and see if it happens for you. Try going here.... Watch this one invade...

That page has been hacked. You will have to disable JavaScript to prevent that redirect. <script>window.onbeforeunload=;document.location='';</script>
