little bit of FireFox help please

i have tried the mozilla help forum, but not only is it extreemly slow to load, but it does not get much in the way of traffic for answereing questsion.

i am running FF vs 1.0 on Debian-sarge

the problem i have is with adblock, a great extension, but i goofed and blocked some scripts at yahoo mail that i should not of in the attempt to block an add that kept showing up that i could not figure out how to get rid of.

my question is, is there a way to edit the list of URLs blocked by adblock so i can get back to my e-mail?

there is an an 'adblock' sub-menu (in mozilla, its under tools- don't know if its the same in FF)

one of the few options should bring up a list of your blocked items.
click delete as necessary.

This is from my Linux Firefox version 1.0PR, so yours may be different.
From HELP:
Popup Blocker Options
This section describes how to use the Firefox Popup Blocker. If you're not already viewing it, open the Web Features Options by following these steps:

1. Select Tools > Options.
2. Click on the Web Features category.

From there, you can do the following things:

* Block Popup Windows
* Exceptions dialog: This is a list of sites that you want to allow to display popups. The dialog has the following options:
o Allow: Click this to add a web site to the exceptions list.
o Remove Site: Click this to remove a web site from the exceptions list.
o Remove All Sites: Click this to remove all of the web sites in the exceptions list.

When a Popup Window Has Been Blocked

Every time a popup is blocked, an icon is displayed in the Firefox status bar to indicate that a popup has been blocked.

Using the popup control icon to add allowed web sites: You can use the popup control icon to quickly add a web site to the list of allowed web sites. Click the icon to open a list of blocked web sites. The current web site is already selected. Click Unblock Site to add the web site to the list of allowed web sites.

Note: Blocking popups may not always work and may interfere with some web sites. For more information about blocking popups, see What are Popups.
Though my Help says so, in 1.0 Preview edition I don't HAVE "Options" in the Tools menu, but that could be because I have installed the "Preferential" extension. You might want to try it, it gives much more control. Make sure to get the right one for your version of FF, if you do.

Also check Edit > Preferences > Web Features
Hit the "Allowed Sites" button

I know that Mozilla, Netscape, and Firefox all have differences from each other.
Though the bloodline is common, each is definitely a separate breed. :wink:
