Allow Pop-Ups in Firefox
Begin by going to the tools menu and clicking on "Options." Then click on "Content." Then to disable all of the pop-ups, simply uncheck the "Block Pop-Up Windows" box. If you want to disable pop-ups for just one site click on "Exceptions." Then enter the URL for the site which you would like to allow pop-ups for. Then close the window and click "Ok."

If you allow pop-ups for a site and then want to remove them later, simply go back to the "Exceptions" screen and click on the URLs that you want to enable the pop-up blocker for and then click "Remove Site." Then click "Ok" and close the window.
