Enabling Pop-ups in Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari

To allow pop-ups for specific websites please follow these steps:

Google Chrome prevents pop-ups from automatically appearing and cluttering your screen. Whenever the browser blocks pop-ups for a site, an icon appears on the top-right in the address bar. Click the icon, check 'Always allow pop-ups from <website address>'.

To see blocked pop-ups for a site, follow the steps listed below.

Type the following in to the address bar in Chrome: chrome://settings/contentExceptions#popups
Add the website address, then click done.

Firefox

Open Firefox and Type the following into the address bar: about:preferences#content
Click Exceptions

Go to the Safari menu and choose Preferences,
Then security and uncheck the box next to 'Block pop-up windows',
Click the red button to close the preferences window.
