Join Nick Brazzi for an in-depth discussion in this video Disabling the pop-up blocker, part of Up and Running with the Firefox Browser.
- Web browsers like Firefox can have multiple windows open…as we've seen before.…In fact, some websites can trigger a new window…to be opened automatically.…These are often referred to as pop-up windows…because they can pop up on your screen…even if you didn't request 'em.…Pop-ups can contain any webpage information,…but they often contain advertisements…or other content that some people find annoying.…That's why Firefox, by default,…has a feature that disables pop-ups.…I'm gonna go into the Menu, to the Options,…and then over to the section on Content…and we can see that the Pop-up blocker…is turned on by default.…
If you want to turn this feature off,…then pop-ups will not be blocked.…Now, pop-ups have fallen out of fashion…with web designers lately.…However, there are some websites out there…that use pop-ups and not just for advertisements.…So, to get the full experience on a website,…you may need to turn off the pop-up blocker.…In fact, there are some websites that you might go to…to fill out a form…and you'll need to disable the pop-ups…
