Summary

Pop-up blockers prevent unwanted web pages from appearing on your screen while browsing the internet.  However, sometimes necessary pop-ups are blocked by the system. The pop-up blocker can be disabled for certain sites.  This article gives instructions on how to turn on/off the Pop-up Blocker and how to allow pop-ups for specific websites on Firefox for Mac.
