Enable pop-ups in Mozilla Firefox

In order for our webmail to function properly in Firefox, you must enable pop-ups. 

In this example, we are using Mozilla Firefox on a Mac. The screenshots may not match yours exactly, but the basic steps will be the same. 

In general, if a browser that supports adding exceptions to your pop-up blocker, then that is preferable to enabling all pop-ups. In Firefox, you can choose whether you would like to enable pop-ups from specific sites or from all websites.
