    Popup Blocker doesn't say what it blocked? (XP-SP2)

    Hello.

    I used to use Popup Manager, an IE add-on. It worked fine, but I uninstalled it before installing XP-SP2 having heard of the new IE popup blocker. I can't seem to find a way to make it tell me the URL that is being blocked <img src=/S/confused3.gif border=0 alt=confused3 width=45 height=45> - I used to be able to read that in a tooltip by pointing at my old Popup Manager red alert bar. Is it possible to make the new IE popup blocker more communicative?

    Thanks,
    Robin

    I thought there was an area just below the address bar, just above the page, that had options. Or maybe I'm getting confused with Firefox. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> Okay, how about in the Status Bar (which you may or may not be viewing). There is supposed to be a notification that you can click for a small menu. If you float over it, does it show the address? Are any of the menu items helpful?

    Until I install SP2, I'll have to defer to those using the new browser. Hopefully someone knows the answer!

    I do have Windows XP SP2, and I don't think there is a way to see what is being blocked. If you wish, you can disable the built-in popup blocker and reinstall the one you had. You can disable the IE popup blocker in the 3rd tab of Tools | Internet Options...
