Allowing Popups in FireFox from Locally Sourced Files

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.
