Current pop-up blocker blocks windows opened automatically without user action. Some users wish to block also windows opened when the user clicks somewhere on a page (e.g. a form element he needs to enter) and the page opens an unwanted window. Reportedly, IE8 does this. Some URLs: http://sergebrussolo.free.fr (Click on "Le Masque d'argile".) http://www.worldlingo.com/products_services/worldlingo_translator.html (click on the From menu to choose a language)
About IE 8's yellow bar: IE 8 does it better. When I click, he displays the yellow bar. If I want to see the popup window that has been blocked, then I click on the yellow bar and then things get complicated for IE; for I-forgot-which-browser, they are simple: I choose the popup window in the yellow menu, and it shows. Shows where? This is another story.
Bug 565104 seems to be about that.
