    If you want to allow a popup from a file accessed via file:///home/rchapin/some_dir/somefile.html, open FireFox's Preferences, click on the Content tab, and click on the 'Exceptions' button adjacent to the 'Block pop-up windows' check box.

    Then enter '<file>' in the 'Address of website:' field and click the 'Allow' button.

  • Fixing "Software installation has been disabled by your system administrator" Notice When Attempting to Install An Addon for Firefox
    01/05/2012 9:49AM

    When I attempted to install the Web Developer Add-on in Firefox I was presented with the error in the title of this post.

    After some searching it seems that the least intrusive way to go about fixing it is to update the Firefox configuration for your user profile.

    If you are on WinXP look in C:\Documents and Settings\UID\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\fxlme5ka.default.  On my install the following preference was in prefs.js


    user_pref("xpinstall.enabled", false);


    user_pref("xpinstall.enabled", true);

    Save the file and restart Firefox.
