Options, content, I check the Block Popups box and click OK.  When I restart Firefox, it always comes up with that box UNchecked, thus allowing popups. It will not retain my preference to block popups.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Firefox
2.Tools/Options/Content, Check Block Popups
3.Okay
4.Restart Firefox
5.Tools/Options/Content, Popup block box is not longer checked
Actual Results:  
as above

Expected Results:  
as above

retained the preference to block popups
Do you have a McAfee security product installed ? They have decided that popups in Firefox should be controlled from their own UI.

Yes I do have McAfee.  So how do I correct this? Thanks
There is info about fixing this problem at:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Popups_not_blocked#Other_software_disables_the_popup_blocker

Since this isn't a bug in Firefox, just in the way McAfee makes their program override it, I'm closing this ticket as INVALID. If you think it's a bug in McAfee's product (like I do) then please let them know.
