If clicked, even after the page loads, the link will no longer work. Only if you let the page completely load, will the link work. This does not apply to all web pages with pop-up links. I have yet been unable to identify why it works on some pages and doesn't on other pages. However, if I find a page that doesn't work, it doesn't work on any of the three computers I try it on. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://revistaepoca.globo.com/ 2. Click on one of the images below the header before the page completely loads 3. Nothing will happen. Even if you then let the page load, you won't be able to get those links to work. 4. Now refresh the page and let it load completely before clicking on a link. The links should work fine now. Actual Results: Links to pop-up windows did not work. Expected Results: Open the pop-up windows even if the page was not completely loaded. This is sometimes hard to duplicate if the page loads all at once, since there is no way to click on the link before the page is completely loaded. However for the pages that don't load like this, it is a pretty common problem I come across.
Reporter: What value you have set for dom.disable_open_during_load in about:config?
I had it set to true. When I set it to false it seemed to fixed the problem, however, at the same time I can no longer block unwanted pop-up windows. Can both work at the same time?

For me when i set this to true: The popup doesn't work during load (that's the sense of the pref :), when loading the page has finished the popup works. So this would still be a bug.
