This sympton has been posted here before, I'm wondering if there is any new advice.

I use IE6, and sometimes I run it under my Yahoo DSL account. OS = XP Pro.

Quoting saraveza408:
"sometimes when im trying to access a site that needs to "pop-up" i hear a noise indicating that a pop-up was blocked & obviously its the one I needed to see & i cant figure out which program I have is blocking it from "popping-up".I try to adjust my settings by the "tools" then "pop-up blocker settings".I allow pop-ups from that site And still the site wont show...i just hear the noise & thats it.So I watch the bar on the bottom of the page & it says "a pop-up window was blocked" & I look for some sign of wat program blocked it & find none.So what do i do?"

Today I was seeing the same symtpom (I've seen it at other sites, but it doesn't happen often). I have McAfee and IE6 pop-up blockers turned off. I don't have the Google toobar, and I can't see any Yahoo toolbar that might have its own blocker activated.

New behavior: today I had both plain vanilla IE6-SP2 and My Yahoo browser/IE6 running together. On the same web page (www.santasbestcraft.com) I click on the "Live Help" icon in the top RHC. Saraveza408's problem occurs in plain IE6, but the window opens under Yahoo!

Can anyone explain this? :whistling: I'd sure like to know what to do when I see this again.

try left or right clicking on the symbol that indicates that a pop up is blocked and I think an option should come up that will allow you to look at that pop up.
