I have run into an odd situation. Normally, people WANT to block pop ups from appearing, but I have a site where if a link is clicked, a pop up window is supposed to appear (so this is a requested pop up). Under these conditions, even with Pop Up Blockers turned on (whether it be Safari or FireFox), this window is supposed to open. Normally, this works just fine.

I have heard of a few cases where people click on this link, and no window opens, in ANY web browser. This problem does not seem to happen to just Safari, but the same issue has been seen in FireFox and IE, also.

I'm suspecting that either something is corrupt with the Mac OS, or there is a third party program which is preventing all pop ups from appearing, even if they are requested.

Could Norton Utilities cause this problem? Has anyone heard of any other utilities? From what I've heard, there are no tool bars installed (Google, Yahoo tool bars, etc.), but I could be wrong.
