Disabling Pop-up Blockers in the Google Toolbar

If you try to click a link or print a report that would open a pop-up window, and you see the Google pop-up blocked button icon, there is a Google pop-up blocker installed in your browser. This pop-up blocker is part of a menu bar:

There are two ways to remove this:

1. Set the pop-up blocker to allow pop-up windows to open (pop through) from this page only.

  • While on the page where you want to be able to access popups, click Google popup button (the pop-up button).

  • Confirm that the button label has now changed to Google site popups allowed button .

  • Try reopening the link to confirm that it can be displayed.

2. Turn off the Google pop-up blocker for all pages.

  • Click Google settings button to open the Settings menu.

  • Click Google options button to open the Google Toolbar Options window.

  • From the Popup Blocker section of the "More" tab, de-select the "Enable Pop-up Blocker" checkbox.
