Pop-up Windows - FAQ

  • What is a Pop-up Window?

    A pop-up window is an Internet browser window that opens on top of the main browser window.

  • What is a Pop-up Blocker?

    When users are having trouble within AllRegs Online, it's usually that their pop-up blocker is keeping them from opening the site.

    Pop-up windows can be a useful tool for building a web site, but unfortunately they are often used to show unsolicited ads. Pop-up windows are so misused that most Internet browsers have built-in “Pop-up Blocker” features that stop these windows from opening.

    There are also numerous add-in programs, such as the Google and Yahoo toolbars, that can add pop-up blocking capability to a browser that doesn’t support it directly.

  • Why Does AllRegs Use Pop-up Windows?

    When you login to AllRegs Online, it opens in a "pop-up" window to maximize the screen area available for showing you our content. There are also a number of important features within AllRegs Online that employ pop-up windows.

    We only utilize these windows to make the user interface more intuitive for our subscribers, NOT to display annoying ads or other intrusive content.
