One feature of Firefox is the ability to use tabbed browsing, which allows you to open multiple websites within the same window on the taskbar. For example, with other browsers, multiple windows become “stacked” on the taskbar. With Firefox, many web pages can be opened within one window and can be navigated using the Tabs, leaving space on your taskbar and keeping browser windows organized and easily accessible.
If the tabs do not appear right away, go to Tools > Options and click on the Advanced icon on the left.
Scroll down to the Tabbed Browsing heading. Underneath are several options dealing with tabbed browsing. Links can be opened in a new window, a new tab within the current window, or the most recent tab or window.
Firefox has a built-in pop-up blocker to block all pop-ups from the web. It can be turned on or off, and can also be set to allow certain sites to have pop-ups. To set pop-up settings and allowed sites, go to Tools > Options and choose the Web Features icon on the list to the left of the window.
Check or uncheck the Block Popup Windows box to set your preference. Click the Allowed Sites button to enter sites from which to allow popups.
To allow popups from a site, enter the site’s address in the top box and click Allow. At any time you may remove a site by choosing the site from the list and clicking Remove Site. You may also remove all allowed sites with the Remove All Sites button.
Options may also be changed on a webpage when a popup occurs. When a popup occurs that is blocked, a notification will appear at the top of the webpage.
Click the notification for more options.
From this menu you can block popups specifically from this site, edit popup blocker options, choose not to show the notification when a popup is blocked, or to show the recently blocked popup.
