    Popups don't like IE

    Hello!

    I'm not sure if this is a good board for this question but here goes:

    Over at FredtheMonkey.com there is a random button that appears in the bottom left corner.

    It says "Updated Fridays" or "Now with Less Fat" or whatever. Anyway,

    It's supposed to call a little popup window the size of an image. Well with Mozilla and Netscape (you know, GOOD browsers) it works as good as a monkey wrench in July, but with Evilsoft's Internet Explorer it does NOTHING.

    Anyone maybe able to help me understand WHY IE won't work with the popups? Or maybe even better- help me fix it??

    THANK YOU OH SO MUCH.

    Hiya

    Microsoft recently released a major update for their service pack 2. One of the little treasures was an automatic pop-up blocker.

    Pop-ups don't like IE
    Rather IE does not like pop-ups. Thanks to Bill. Gates that is.

    OK, screw you Microsoft.

    Anyway, how do I get around this little problem? It has to be possible right? Things like the cartoons at Ebolaworld.com still pop up in their own sized nicely windows.

    Oh yeah and SCREW YOU MICROSOFT! WHY DO YOU TRY TO MAKE ME ANGRY EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE?!?

    I never see any random button appear to start with!
    And I'm on IE5.5!
    So how can you say the popup wouldn't work?

    Ummm... I'm pretty sure you've seen the button if you went to FredtheMonkey.com

    It's right on the flash swf. See, when you visit the site two random things happen. A different character appears in the logo and the button (opposite the latest update button) changes. It says "Now with less fat" or "Updated every Friday" or "Even better framerate" etc.

    Do you know what I mean?
    Anyway, that's the button that doesn't seem to want to pop up with anything after clicking on it with IE.

    Yah?
