2.2 Disabling Pop-Up Blockers

The steps to disable pop-up blockers varies for different web browsers on different operating systems.  Below are details on how to disable pop-up blockers for a variety of popular web browsers and operating systems:

Google Chrome
In Google Chrome, a small yellow button appears at the right hand side of the omnibox (Address bar) and this should be clicked upon and the option to "Always allow pop-ups from www.nhseportfolios.org" should be selected before clicking Done.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 (and later)
In Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 or later, a yellow information panel will be displayed at the bottom of the page, but will disappear automatically after a few seconds.  When this panel is displayed, click the "Options for this site" button and choose Always allow.  Alternatively, you may wish to choose Pop-up Blocker Settings from the Pop-up Blocker submenu within the Tools menu. In Pop-up Blocker Settings, you can then add https://www.nhseportfolios.org/ to the Allowed Sites list.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8
In Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, a yellow information bar will be displayed at the top of the page.  Click this bar, then click the "Always Allow Pop-ups from This Site…" menu option.  Alternatively, you may wish to choose Pop-up Blocker Settings from the Pop-up Blocker submenu within the Tools menu. In Pop-up Blocker Settings, you can then add https://www.nhseportfolios.org/ to the Allowed Sites list.

Mozilla Firefox
In Mozilla Firefox, a yellow information bar will be displayed at the top of the page.  On Mac OSX, this will contain a button labelled "Preferences", in Microsoft Windows the button will be labelled "Options".  Click this button, and select "Allow popups for www.nhseportfolios.org" from the drop-down menu that appears.

Apple Safari - MacOS
In Apple Safari in MacOS, pop-up windows are silently blocked, with no indication that this has occurred.  To disable the pop-up blocker first press ⌘+, (cmd and the comma key) to open Safari preferences.  In Safari preferences, select the Security tab, then uncheck the "Block pop-up windows" option.

Apple Safari - iOS (iPhone) and iPadOS (iPad)
In Apple Safari on iPhones and iPads, pop-up windows are silently blocked, with no indication that this has occurred.  To disable the pop-up blocker click the Settings icon on your home screen, scroll the left hand panel until Safari is shown and tap it.  In the right hand panel, ensure the slider beside Block Pop-ups (in the General section) is in the off position (to the left and not highlighted in green).
