How Do I "Disable" Popup Blockers?

Pop-up Blockers are designed to block unwanted pop-ups such as advertisements. If they are "enabled" on your computer, they also prevent you from viewing some PurePlay features such as "Reveal Cards". If you have pop-up blockers enabled, you will need to disable them on each toolbar you have installed on your computer. For instance, if you have Internet Explorer as your browser and also have the Google toolbar installed, you will need to disable the pop-up blocker on both toolbars.

Instructions on disabling pop-up blockers for specific browsers and toolbars:

Internet Explorer Toolbar

  1. Choose the "Tools" option and highlight "Pop-Up Blocker."
  2. If the pop-up blocker is already disabled on your computer you will see "Turn on Pop-up Blocker" and you don't need to make any changes. (If you click on this option it will enable the pop-up blocker).
  3. If the pop-up blocker is enabled on your computer you will see two choices when you highlight "Pop-Up Blocker" on your toolbar -- "Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker" and "Pop-Up Blocker Settings."
  4. Clicking "Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker" will disable it. You are done.

Here's how to disable the pop-up blocker just for PurePlay web pages and keep the blocker enabled for other web sites using Internet Explorer.

  1. Choose the "Tools" option and highlight "Pop-Up Blocker".
  2. If the pop-up blocker is currently enabled you will see two options to choose from: "Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker" and "Pop-Up Blocker Settings". If the pop-up blocker is currently disabled click on "Turn On Pop-Up Blocker" so you can see the "Pop-Up Blocker Settings."
  3. Select the "Pop-up Blocker Settings".
  4. A window opens. Copy and paste http://player.pureplay.com into the first box (Address of Web site to allow).
  5. Click on the "Add" tab at right and click on the "Close" tab at the bottom. The pop-up blocker will always be disabled for subsequent visits to this web site.

 

Mozilla Firefox Toolbar

  1. Choose "Tools" on the Toolbar and select "Options".
  2. If the box next to "Block Popup Windows" is unchecked you already have the pop-up blocker disabled. You don't need to make any changes.
  3. If the box next to "Block Popup Windows" is checked, click in it to uncheck the box. Click "OK". You are done.
  4. To turn the pop-up blocker back on, complete the steps above and place a check mark in the "Block Popup Window" box. Click "OK".

Here's how to disable the pop-up blocker just for PurePlay and keep it enabled for other web sites using Mozilla Firefox.
