Hi all,

The subject line says it all. Is there a way to allow pop-ups on only one specific website?

Thanks.

    Hi Mark

    no built-in way, no.

    There are add-ons & extensions that I believe allow such usefulness - but unhelpfully I don't use them or recall the names.

    *edit*
    http://glimmerblocker.org/ is well regarded, for blocking more than just pop-ups - perhaps it will suit you.

    As much as I like Safari, in your situation I tend to go "outside the fold."

    Before my retirement, our employee HR web site required pop-ups be enabled for viewing check stubs and other important functions, plus you had to turn on "Accept third-party cookies," something I am loathe to do often.

    I simply used another browser just for that site. I used Camino. It allows selective acceptance of pop-ups so was easier to use it than change Safari's setting because I needed to access one site.

    With this set-up, I was able to keep Safari free of add-ons or extensions and still have fast access to the HR site that loved pop-ups.
