Pop-up windows are an annoyance when browsing the Internet. Pop-ups are frequently used for website advertising and marketing, but they can be used for things such as download windows or interactive content that you want to see. Internet Explorer and Firefox allow users to block pop-ups with internal pop-up blockers. However, if you accidentally choose to block a website, you can edit the pop-up blocker settings. You can also explicitly allow some websites to open new windows in your browser.
Open the Firefox browser. Click the orange "Firefox" menu, select "Options" and choose "Options" from the menu that slides out.
Click the "Content" tab. Click the "Exceptions" button.
Enter the Web address of the website from which you want to allow pop-ups. Click "OK" to save your settings.
Open Internet Explorer. Click the "Tools" menu and select "Pop-up Blocker." From the list of options, click "Pop-up Blocker Settings." This opens the configuration window.
Enter the website you want to remove from the pop-up blocker in the text box labeled "Address of website to allow." Click the "Add" button.
Click "OK" to save your settings.
Open Google Chrome. Click the "Wrench" icon at the upper-right side of your browser screen.
Select "Settings" and choose the "Show Advanced Settings" link at the bottom of the page.
Click the "Content Settings" button in the Privacy section.
Click "Manage Exceptions" in the Pop-ups section.
Type the Web address of the website you want to add. Select "Allow" from the Behavior drop-down menu.
Click the "OK" button to save your settings.
