Web Pages (Pop Ups) Open Without Any Toolbars. How do I prevent this?

Kuphostiwe

Since about two or three updates back, when I click on some links, the page pops out, but without any tool bars. Without the tool bars, if I select a link on the page, there are no arrows to click on to go to the previous page. Example: I was searching for a car to purchase. The window for the dealership popped out of the link, but had no toolbar. When I clicked on a link for a car I was pondering, the only way to go to the previous page with the list of cars, was to search the history in the pull down menu. This can get very tedious. It's like going back to a dial-up landline phone after using an iPhone for years, or opening your car window with a crank handle instead of an electronic, automatic open button.

I tried various ways to change this via the preferences.Each has worked for a while, and then reverted back to popping out pages without toolbars. I clicked on this link - https://www.thedailybeast.com/jon-stewart-lets-be-honest-democrats-dont-really-give-a-fck-about-russia - and it popped out without a toolbar. I closed it, and then clicked on the link, and it loaded with a toolbar.

How did Firefox become so erratic? How do we resolve this?

Hi rbrownfield, I don't know why you would get mixed results from the same site. Certainly you can get different types of windows from different sites. When a website creates a pop-up window, it can specify the height and width, and which bars will show. When a site specifies features, the link opens in a separate new window instead of being diverted to a new tab like other links.

Firefox always shows the "address bar" ("location bar") section of the main toolbar, even if sites don't mention wanting that, but others parts, like the main toolbar buttons can be excluded.

There are two different workarounds you can try, depending on your preference:

Force Scripted Windows with Features into a New Tab Instead

When you force the popup into a tab, it will of course have the same toolbars as the current window. Here's how:

(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 link.o and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction and edit the value to 0 (that's a zero) to divert both regular AND scripted windows with features to a new tab instead (assuming you have Firefox set to divert windows to a new tab instead)

Prevent Sites From Hiding Bars

Firefox has numerous settings you can use to override sites' removal of popup window features. These are named in some strange ways, but you should be able to get it to work the way you want. Here's how:

(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 feat and pause while the list is filtered

(3) The relevant preferences are the one starting with dom.disable_window_open_feature and these may be the most interesting, depending on which toolbars you want:

  • Double-click the dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar preference to switch the value from false to true -- this means the site is disabled from removing the main toolbar (I use true for this)
  • Double-click the dom.disable_window_open_feature.personalbar preference to switch the value from false to true -- this means the site is disabled from removing the Bookmarks toolbar (but it will only show if you have turned on the Bookmarks Toolbar for other windows)
  • {Windows users:} Double-click the dom.disable_window_open_feature.menubar preference to switch the value from false to true -- this means the site is disabled from removing the top menu bar (File, Edit, View...) (but it will only show if you have turned on the Menu Bar for other windows)
