Are pop-ups allowed by my web browser?
This page shows you if your browser is allowing pop-up windows to be automatically shown.
The only way to know...
The only way to test this is to actually try to automatically open a pop-up window; this is why you might have either seen a "Pop-up Blocked" warning near your browser's Address Bar, or you may have seen a pop-up window flash on the screen briefly.
Spammers ruin everything
Pop-up windows have some legitmate uses on the web; but in reality, they have been abused by spammers for a long time, so it is very common for modern web browsers to automatically block pop-up windows.
It's possible to allow pop-up windows for certain domains (or to disable pop-up blocking all together).
We're going to write some guides about enabling and disabling pop-ups. Check back later!
