As is the case with many modern browsers, Firefox 29 automatically blocks all pop-up windows from appearing whenever you load a new Web page. While this is considered to be a handy feature in most instances, there are occasions where you want or need to see and/or interact with the contents of a pop-up. Thankfully the browser offers a way to whitelist certain sites within its pop-up blocker, as well as disable the feature altogether. This tutorial walks you through each method.

First, open your Firefox browser. Next, click on the Firefox menu; represented by three horizontal lines and circled in the example above. When the pop-out menu appears, click on Options.
