I've been getting a lot of popups from WeatherBug and WeatherCast. I always get
them at the URL I mentioned above, but they also happen at a number of other web
sites as well.  When they pop up, I right-click on them and select "reject popup
windows from this site."  However, that doesn't seem to work.  The same popups
continue to load anyway, even though I told Mozilla to reject them.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Visit a web site that produces popups, such as

2.  Right-click on the popup and select "reject popup windows from this site"
from the menu.

3.  The next time I visit the site, the popup windows continue to come up even
though I told Mozilla to reject them.

Actual Results:  
Still getting popups from sites I told Mozilla to reject.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have rejected the popups I told it to reject.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
