Customize Pop-up Blockers

Using a pop-up blocker can prevent the display of unwanted ads on the Web, but it may also interfere with the functionality of some Puget Sound applications. If you have pop-up blockers enabled, you will need to set your browser to allow pop-ups for information coming from our two domains, pugetsound.edu and ups.edu. See the instructions below for Internet Explorer and Firefox or contact the Service Desk at 253.879.8585 or servicedesk@pugetsound.edu for assistance.
