Pop-up blocker

Pop-up windows can interrupt what you're doing, but Toolbar's Pop-up blocker blocks most unwanted pop-ups from ever becoming a nuisance while still allowing the ones you do want to open to open. Say that quickly three times.

Enable or disable the Pop-up blocker

  1. Click Toolbar's spanner wrench icon.
  2. On the Tools tab, select (or deselect) the 'Pop-up blocker' Pop-up blocker tick box.
  3. Click Save.

Allow pop-ups

To allow pop-ups, just click Toolbar's Pop-up blocker button. The button's icon should change from 'Pop-ups blocked' Pop-ups blocked to 'Pop-ups allowed' Pop-ups allowed. Once you allow pop-ups on a specific website, Pop-up blocker adds the website to an 'Allowed sites' whitelist.

View the 'Allowed sites' list

  1. Click Toolbar's spanner wrench icon.
  2. On the Tools tab, click the Edit link next to the 'Pop-up blocker' tick box.

If you're still unable to open pop-ups after clicking the Pop-up blocker button, check that IE and your security software aren't preventing them from opening.

Reset the Pop-up blocker counter

Click the Pop-up blocker button's drop-down menu, then select Reset count.
