Description

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?

whitelisting domain.com should also allow popups from sub.domain.com. This
doesn't work for you?

Ok, well *now* that somebody's looking, everything's working fine now with no
little popup blocking notification.  Apologies for the duplicate and please
close this; I'll refer to this request should I be able to reliably reproduce it in
the future.

It was a little time between when I ran into this and when I filed it, so
perhaps something crossed wires (or maybe it was a MacOSX Mozilla issue).

Sorry to take your time.

It currently works for me; I will reopen it or file a new one with better
specifics should I run into it again.

Well, I tried out putting in just the domain and no problems under both MacOSX
and Windows, for extra confirmation.
