I cannot get pop-ups to work. Even if I add them as an exception.

I add the share buttons on my website, but they do not show up in Mozilla. So I added the webpage as a pop-up exception, but the share buttons still do not display. I then tried a grocery store page that I get an error that I can't see their popup. I added them to the exception but it still gives me a popup error. The information (circled i by the page address), does say that pop-up is allowed, but still does not show.

Note: With the new Firefox, many add-ons are no longer compatible.

Go to the support page for the add-on and see if it is compatible.

Here are your choices; 1) Contact its support and ask if they will update 2) Find a replacement 3) Downgrade to a prior Firefox 4) Do without

I don't know what add-ons will fix my problem. I am new to using firefox so I just install the previous version 5.6. Unfortunately, my share buttons, etc still don't work and firefox upgraded me back to 5.7.

Have you used the built-in Web Console to check it out yourself?
