To distinguish between wanted pop-ups and unwanted pop-ups, Mozilla applications maintain a list of events that can legitimately spawn pop-ups. This preference is that list.

Possible values and their effects

  • Removing entries from this list may block legitimate pop-ups; adding entries to this list may allow unwanted pop-ups.
