firefox 1.0 - how to override popup blocker selectively, how to enable work for only certain popups within same domain

I have firefox 1.0, running on winxp

Firefox blocks popups fine, but sometimes, for selected occassions
only, i would like to be able to have window popup; without enabling
whole domains, as other popups from same domain are not desired.

How can I selectively override the firefox popup blocker, without
opening up pop up from many ads from same domain.

I believe that is done by how the popup takes place.
I have been in numerous sites where various site generated popups are shown,
but no spam type ones get through.
For instance, www.gifworks.com
Edit a gif and the necessary popup windows are allowed, whereas in IE they
are not.
I'm not sure if you have to allow cookies for that or not, but I haven't had
an issue with them.

Although there is an occasional one that comes through.
So I would imagein firefox has something to check the script to determine
what the source is.
You might want to pose this question on the firefox forum.

Hello, I'm trying to get a popup to keep focus when it is re-clicked. The script below is supposed to produce this exact behaviour, however it doesn't work, at least on firefox 1.0.7 and moz 1.7.12 (linux kubuntu). It does work with konqueror. It seems to work with firefox on windows but not with IE (not completly sure though).
