By default, Firefox has a pretty good pop-up blocker. It gets the job done. Sometimes, it does too good of a job and blocks a pop-up on a webpage where you want to see a pop-up though. Today, I will be showing you how to allow pop-ups for a certain domain from within Firefox.
To access the pop-up blocker settings, from the menu toolbar go to Tools and then Options. Next, you want to select the Content panel.
Beside where it says, “Block pop-up windows” click on the button labeled Exceptions. This will give you a list of sites that you want to allow to display pop-ups.
From here you can:
- Allow: Click this to add a website to the exceptions list.
- Remove Site: Click this to remove a website from the exceptions list.
- Remove All Sites: Click this to remove all of the websites in the exceptions list.
This can also be a good way to unapprove a website you have mistakenly allowed to display pop-ups too.
So, there you have it. Now you know how to give a website permission to display pop-up windows, or take that permission away. Now, in a perfect world businesses and websites would do away with the annoying pop-ups all together. Until then though, this work around should do the trick. Hope this helps those of you looking for a solution to let Firefox display pop-ups.
