BROWSERS: Modifying pop-up blockers
Chances are you have at least one pop-up blocker installed on your computer. This software is included in almost every web browser and installed with many toolbars and security programs. You will need to modify the settings to allow pop-ups from my.ufv.ca in order for you to see all functions properly.
We suggest that you add an exception (allow) pop-ups for all UFV websites in one of your blockers and disable all the others. You need to add the exception *.ufv.ca
Instructions for Internet Explorer 8
Click on Tools -> Pop-up Blocker -> Pop-up Blocker Settings
Type *.ufv.ca in the Address of website to allow: field
Click the Add button
You can now see *.ufv.ca in the Allowed Sites list so that all UFV websites that use pop-ups will be allowed while other sites that use pop-ups will be blocked. If you would like to allow other sites to display their pop-ups, repeat instructions above inputting their website or domain address instead of ufv.ca.
Click Close button
Close ALL windows to activate changes upon next opening.
Click on the attachment above this article to see where common popup blockers can be found so that you can disable them or add exceptions to them.
Remember that if you have followed the instructions and still are getting blocked then there is still at least one more blocker to disable or remove on your computer! Keep looking.
