With most modern browsers, the idea of having pop-up advertisements is a thing of the past. However, sometimes you do need to see a pop-up window. Most often I see this with websites that have old membership areas that haven’t been updated in a long time. I also have this problem on my bank’s website too. So how can you tell Firefox to let certain domains show pop-up windows?

Every so often, you might need to find your Firefox profile folder to do some tweaking or maintenance of your own. In the past, this has lead to diving through your operating system’s folders and after twenty clicks, finding the information you need.
