Description

7 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13

the popup blocker bar has these options:
1. allow - pop-ups for www.xxx.com
2. edit pop-up blocker options
3. don't show this message when pop-ups are blocked

because I develop applications that "pop-up" windows (which was unfortunately hijacked years ago by advertisers), I would need the options to remain the same so the first time a customer uses my application they can visually SEE why something didn't open and allow it.

However, for other sites out there that are just advertising but which I visit regularly, the options given are insufficient.  I suggest you add between #1 and #3, "Block pop-ups for www.xxx.com automatically"

When this is clicked, you get this dialog:
------------------------------------------
Pop-ups from www.xxx.com will now be blocked automatically, and the pop-up bar will no longer show when this is done.  To change this, go to ______________

           [ OK ]
[ ] Do not show this message again
------------------------------------------

essentially, a pop-up black-list in addition to a pop-up white list.

I am suggesting this because it's pestering to see the pop-up bar every time for that site..

Thanks, we do donate to Mozilla and appreciate what I consider the gold standard in an application.
