Why does the clear history action wipe out the web addresses I have allowed in the pop-up blocker?
I need the pop-up blocker to allow pop-ups from my university web site. I clear history regularly and have noticed that each time I do this, the list of allowed sites in the pop-up blocker also gets wiped. Why is this and how can I stop it?
I discovered that by having Site Preferences unchecked in the Clear History window that the pop-up blocker remembers the sites I have added to it. So, I have found a solution, though I confess that I don't really understand what the Site Preferences item is or does.
