How to Stop Blocking Pop-Ups You Need
On the Web, most pop-ups are just annoying ads. But some pop-ups contain important information that you need to access in order to complete forms or download programs.

If you're using our free EarthLink Toolbar and it blocks a pop-up you need to see, you can simply disable pop-up blocking for that site in the Toolbar. To do this, click the down arrow on the Toolbar's Pop-Up Blocker button and select Add this Web site to my Allow List. This will allow the site you're on to display pop-ups.

If you're not using our Toolbar, but are still having legitimate pop-ups blocked, your browser may be the problem. Most modern browsers such as Internet Explorer 7, 8, or Firefox include their own pop-up blockers. In Internet Explorer 7 and 8, click on the Tools menu, then Pop-up blocker and finally Pop-up blocker Settings to add a website to the exceptions list. In Firefox, click on Tools, then Options, then the Content tab and access the Block pop-up windows - Exceptions button to add a web site to the exception list.

Don't have the EarthLink Toolbar with Pop-Up Blocker? Get it here!
