It doesn't block any popup. I recognized after about 20 (not always the same often) times opening the same/similar(on the same homepage) popup, something inside the popupmanager crashes. Then it blocks all popups. Even if you add the Homepage to the "Popup allowed"-list, it blocks it. Restart helps as "workaround" for the problem. I recognized this with Mozilla 1.7 and Firefox 0.9.3. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a popup link 2. Deactivate popup blocking 3. Click it until its not possible anymore. (about 20 times?) Actual Results: Popups get blocked Expected Results: Popups should be allowed. I recognized this problem on the intranet server i have been working at.
This is purposeful; we never allow more than 20 popups open at once, even if the popup blocker is off.

Well, it shouldn't disallow the 20th popup if you've been closing the popups as you go along. But the given steps to reproduce are very imprecise. In fact even allowing some leeway I can't reproduce this bug with the instructions given. I'm closing this bug, assuming it's another report of bug 247421. Note that the fix for 247421 at time of writing exists only on the trunk, not in any release build. Reporter, please try with a recent nightly build. If it's still a problem, reopen and give precise steps including URLs or better yet, an attached, simplified testcase.
PS as Boris mentioned, when opening allowed popup windows, even a fixed trunk build won't let you have more than about 20 of those open simultaneously. My reading of this bug is that was not the problem being reported.
Nothing was checked in. From the comments this should either have been resolved as WORKSFORME or INVALID. ->INVALID (since that was the last comment).
I have to reopen this bug. I used the nightly build i former downloaded for about a month now. I work with popups at my company so i usually open about 50 of them a day and since a few days it doesn't open popups again. So it seems to be a problem that only occurs with a browser used every day for a longer time. (not easy reproduceable) But it constantly occurs. If you install a new Browser, it won't have that problem (even if its a older version). PS.: By the way, i want to append that those "~20" popups were not opened directly after each other (usualy it was one a click).
OK but we have a better bug to cover this issue. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 260264 ***
