  4. Click the Pop-up Icon: Click on the pop-up icon in the address bar.
  5. Choose Pop-up Settings: A menu will appear with options related to pop-ups. You can choose to “Always allow pop-ups and redirects from [website]” to allow pop-ups for this specific website, or select “Block [website]” to block pop-ups.
