If a web page fails to function, try disabling your pop-up blocker

Pop-up blockers are generally safe to use and can prevent you from seeing advertisements — but they can also prevent some pages from loading properly, especially if the site is trying to load a pop-up that you actually want to see. This is often the case if you click a link and nothing happens, though in some cases the page may fail to load at all with a pop-up blocker running.
