I trying to log in to a website on my Sprint BlackBerry 8830 and the site is telling me it has detected a popup blocker and that I need to disable it if I want to continue. I cannot find an option anywhere to disable a popup blocker nor did I know the BlackBerry had one. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks.

When the browser is open, hit the menu button and go to options. Select the first option, Browser Configuration. There is a check box usually unchecked... "Allow Javascript Popups". Check this. If this doesnt help... then the website is most likely not written for mobile devices very well.

I have it set to "Prompt to enable JavaScript" and when trying to log in to the site, it does prompt me and I click allow. That's when it says it is detecting a popup blocker.

I absolutely love my blackberry, and i think it is an awesome PDA. It is a horrible internet browsing device though, and you wont find to many people disagreeing with that. Once the 4.6 device OS is released for your 8830 it might get better, but if you are still getting that problem, you will not be able to work around it with the native browser.

Check out the Opra Mini browser for your BlackBerry... that might work better!

This site just isn't for mobile devices. And I agree that the BlackBerry is miserable for web browsing.
