They popup quicker than I can close them. There needs to be a limit and/or a time limit. Any creditable site never does more than 2 popups. If there needs to be more popup the browser should be listening to user interaction with the popups. And the popup block should have a quick bypass system so when popup blocker is on you can hold down a key to let popups you need through. email@example.com Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to the site 2.do nothing 3.close the page Actual Results: popus galore. I couldn't get rid off them fast enough. I could not close the page that caused them fast enough Expected Results: Limited it to 2 popups Also if popup blocker is on there should be a keypress to let needed ones through
Dean: The popup blocker exists precisely because of sites like this. Additionally, it is possible to exempt sites from the popup blocker (the exclaimation point icon in the lower right of Mozilla) or request that only popups from linked you click be allowed to open. Your suggestion that you be able to override popup blocking with a key is a good one, but it is a duplicate of bug 202668. If you have any other thoughts, please comment there. Thanks. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 202668 ***
