When a site requires pop-up windows to function, you will have to turn off the pop-up blocker in your web browser to allow the site to function. We’ll show you how to do that in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari.
You can disable Chrome’s built-in pop-up blocker on both your desktop and mobile devices from the settings menu.
To turn off the pop-up blocker in Chrome on desktop, launch Chrome and head into three dots menu > Settings > Privacy and Security > Site Settings > Pop-Ups and Redirects. There, enable the “Sites Can Send Pop-Ups and Use Redirects” option.
To disable the pop-up blocker in Chrome on mobile, open Chrome and navigate to the three dots menu > Settings > Site Settings > Pop-Ups and Redirects. There, activate the “Pop-Ups and Redirects” option.
Mozilla Firefox’s desktop, iPhone, and iPad versions allow you to turn off the pop-up blocker. The Android version does not have a pop-up blocker, which means you do not have to do anything to allow those tiny windows.
To disable the pop-up blocker in Firefox on desktop, launch Firefox and click the three horizontal lines menu followed by Settings > Privacy & Security. There, turn off the “Block Pop-Up Windows” option.
To turn off Firefox’s pop-up blocker on iPhone or iPad, open Firefox, navigate to three horizontal lines menu, tap Settings, and turn off the “Block Pop-Up Windows” option.
Turning off the pop-up blocker in Microsoft Edge is as easy as many other web browsers.
To stop Edge’s pop-up blocker on desktop, access Edge, head to three dots menu, then click Settings > Cookies and Site Permissions > Pop-Ups and Redirects, and turn off the “Block” option.
To disable Edge’s pop-up blocker on mobile, open Edge, go to three dots menu, then tap Settings > Privacy and Security > Site Permissions > Pop-Ups and Redirects, and enable the “Pop-Ups and Redirects” option.
Safari on Mac also comes with a built-in pop-up blocker.
To disable it, open Safari and navigate to Safari > Preferences > Websites > Pop-Up Windows. There, at the bottom, click the “When Visiting Other Websites” drop-down menu and choose “Allow.”
To deactivate the pop-up blocker in Safari on an iPhone or iPad, use your phone’s Settings app.
Start by launching Settings and tapping “Safari.” There, turn off the “Block Pop-Ups” option.
And that’s how you allow your sites to open those tiny windows in your various web browsers. Enjoy!
