Firefox on your iPhone has a number of different features that are enabled by default, including a pop-up blocker. This blocker is intended to stop malicious advertising and other such pop-ups that negatively affect your browsing experience.
But not all pop-ups are bad, and some websites will use them to give you additional pages, documents, or other information that you need from those sites. So if you are trying to open something and it doesn’t seem to be working, then it’s possible that the Firefox browser is stopping a pop-up. Our tutorial below will show you where to find the pop-up blocker setting in the Firefox iPhone browser so that you can disable it.
