IE7 Pop-up Blocker Blocking Too Much
Posted on 2007-10-18
I've got a text link on my website that opens a pop-up window when clicked. When IE7 has the pop-up blocker set to "Medium: Block most automatic pop-ups", it does not block it. This is great. This is exactly what I want.
On the other hand, I have a Flash movie that opens a pop-up window when clicked. With the same settings in IE7's pop-up blocker, it blocks the pop-up. This is NOT what I want.
I believe the average person using IE7 has the blocker set to medium, like I do, and this is a problem. This pop-up is going to be getting a lot of traffic soon, and it needs to not be blocked. Any idea how to make IE7 recognize that it is NOT an "automatic" pop-up, so that it won't block it under the medium setting?
I have Macromedia Flash 8, if that makes a difference.
