There are several sites that I use that are "control panel" type web
applications. When you click an application button for some features a popup is
supposed to launch so you can perform some actions. FF is not opening these
popups for me, even though I have added the sites to the "allow popups" list in
my options.

I hate the thought of using <gulp> IE to use these sites.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. find a web app that uses popups
2. get first blocked popup
3. use popup actions to add site to allow list
4. try again. close ff, reopen. try again. close ff, reboot, reopen. retry

Actual Results:  
nada. nothing.

Expected Results:  
allow popups to open for sites listed in the "allow" list.

I have similar problem.

I develop a web application that heavilly uses popups. 

I allowed it to show popups. Popups show ok. But after large number (several
hundred?) popups they ceast to work - are blocked.
