Considering that a firewall may include popup blockers, or spam blockers, or ad blockers, and considering that IE, or I now see, Firefox can do the same, I wonder if these utilities conflict with one another with potentially damaging results.
Any experience? Any evidence? How is it all resolved?
I'd like to understand how it works. :thumbsup:

I have no evidence either way, but I generally like to only use one app per purpose. If you have a firewall with popup blocking, get rid of the popup blocker etc.
