    Firefox is my default browser. I made the mistake of clicking "Always allow pop-ups on this site" on a Web site. I want to change that back to block. I can find no listing of unblocked sites anywhere in Firefox. Where do I go to change the setting back to "block"?

    Hi DK,
    If you go to Tools/Options and then the Content tab, there's a checkmark for "block popup windows". To the right of that is a button for Exceptions which should show you all the sites you've allowed popups for. Hope that helps.

    Wouldn't you know, I look in other tabs, but not that one. However, strangely, the site I had said "Always allow..." wasn't on the list. Despite not being on the list, ads were showing that hadn't shown before. But maybe it was just a passing glitch. If not, I'll post another message on the thread.

    Thanks.
