Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031009
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031009

I use Mozilla to perform banking on multiple sites.  Of note, brokerage and
investment sites such as Vanguard will log on to one of multiple sites
(flagship2.vanguard.com, flagship3.vanguard.com, etc).  

For companies I trust, I'd like to be able to allow popups from either the
entire domain (*.vanguard.com) or at least a common set of hosts
(flagship*.vanguard.com) using a single wildcard rather than by enumerating all
the desired sites and watching for the little ! icon all the time while on these
sites.

Vanguard, for example, uses popups to conduct an extremely consistent UI
experience, and my experience is that they won't start sending me undesired ads.
 As such, I want to simply whitelist them; anything undesired that comes through
from that site, I'll follow up with through their support process.

Can I already do this?  It wasn't clear from the UI.  Sorry if this is in the
wrong category; I couldn't find 'pop-up blocking 'listed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
I've tried adding flagship4.vanguard.com, *.vanguard.com, and vanguard.com, but
logging in and getting flagship2.vanguard.com instead of flagship4.vanguard.com
causes popups to be blocked (and the little icon to show up).


Expected Results:  
Err, perhaps I should be using a different wildcard?
