    I've always primarily used IE. I'm not interested in a religious debtate
    about browsers. It's just convenient.

    Well, this popup blocker is getting more and more unacceptable and I've
    started using Firefox, because I just can't take it any longer!

    Typical scenario:

    I go to a site. Select North America on a fancy map.
    Then select US on a subsequent prompt.
    There's the popup notification bar. So I have to enable popups temporarily.

    WAIT! The page has RELOADED and I have to start all over again!

    I wrestled with this STUPID DESIGN to the point where I was SCREAMING the
    other day. I had to navigate through a site, filling out a form THREE TIMES
    before IE finally allowed me to do my job!

    You really need to find a better way to do this. There's just no reason to
    reload the page to allow a stupid popup. None.

    If you know that you are using a site which does popups why not allow it to
    do popups or at least use the keyboard shortcut which says that? (e.g.
    Ctrl+Alt+Click)

    Now just how are you supposed to know THAT ahead of time?

    Todd, it annoys me too.

    Me too. I disable pop-up blocker in policy. There is no use for it.
