This is based off the reports from Bug 122927 and Bug 150340. When the popup blocker is turned on, it will also block requested windows. The sample URL, for instance, won't give an MSDS if this preference is turned on, even if it is explicitly asked for. Since the popup blocker can't distinguish between requested vs unrequested windows, it would be useful to have a signal that an (un)requested window is being sent. If I'm expecting it, then I can do something about it. In (my) ideal world there would be an extra button created when the popup preference is selected. When an unrequested window is selected it would change colour (I originally thought it should flash, but how annoying would that be? Yeah, about that much.) and, again ideally, I should be able to click it and bring up a list of the originating site(s) for the popup(s). At the very least, I would like to that know something I wanted was being blocked.
