The new popup bar does not work at all. Even when selecting to allow popups it
continues to block them. The bar is not functional.. (the right click menu
options don't work on the popup bar). All popups end up being blocked even when
they are requested by a user click. (not normally blocked in previous builds)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a page that opens a popup from a link.
2. The new popup blocker bar will open below the tabs
3. Choose to unblock the site from the new popup bar

Actual Results:  
Notice that even though you have chosen to allow popups, it continues to block them.

Expected Results:  
It should have unblocked the site from being blocked of all popups.

I'm running the same build as you but it doesn't work. Even after clicking allow
popups from any website it does nothing. The context menus on the popup blocking
alert bar don't work. The popups all remain blocked and I cannot open any
windows into a popup window. Others have confirmed the same happening at
mozillazine?? I fresh installed this build also. Clean profile.

Does this affect all sites or just the one in the URL? Does the first link at work? Do you get any errors in the Javascript console?

After reviewing that link and looking back at the GMAIL site.. I have to
conclude that this bug must be tied to javascript because the link you gave me I
was able to use the popup blocker sucessfully and unblock successfully. It must
be isolated to javascript because the contacts link in question on GMAIL uses
javascript. After clicking to allow popups from gmail, I then proceeded to press
the link in question but it no longer functioned. So perhaps this is isolated to
javascript only.

WFM as well using 20040722 Aviary installer build.

Anyone else who is still seeing this with a recent nightly?

I still see it on GMAIL. The contacts button doesn't work. It now pops up a
message that the popup blocker is blocking the popup. So naturally I click
unblock then I refresh the page and click again and it still
blocks the popup.. It doesn't work.

Ryan - are you using Tabbrowser Extensions?

I was seeing the same problem - Edit in contacts in GMAIL didn't work.

I disabled TBE and restarted Firefox - boom now it works (20040727 Aviary).

Note - those 'edit' links don't open popups - they open up a little frame thingy
in the same contacts view.

The only extension I have installed is the web developer toolbar. TBE is not

Since no one else has commented that they still have the problem I'm closing
this bug as WORKSFORME per comment 14, if anyone still sees it please reopen.
