1)  From Tools point to Pop-up Blocker, and then click on Pop-up Blocker Settings.2)  Type paws.tcnj.edu in the box ‘Address of Web site to Allow’ and Click ‘Add’.

3)  Click Close.

Firefox

1)  From Tools select Options.

2)  Select the Content icon.

3)  If the Block Pop-up Windows is selected, click Exceptions.
