How to Allow Pop-ups in Firefox

Firefox Pop-up Warning

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.

Pop-up Exceptions

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.

Allow 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.
