There is no "notify me when a pop up is blocked" check box in the options selection under tools.

I've been there. I've done that. I've read the book. I bought the T-shirt. It still don't work. It's a glitch in Google Chrome. It don't matter how many boxes or which ones you tick, when you try to make an event from a received email, you get the pop-up blocker notice whether pop-ups are actually blocked or not.

bbrout is right...there is not an option to allow a pop-up to be utilized.  Regardless of the box checked, Chrome kills the pop-up.... which makes it impossible to create an event from gmail.  This needs to be fixed.

Aha!!! Finally, Truth rears it's ugly head. Sometimes it becomes impossible to hide the obvious.

Hi all,

Thanks for reporting the issue with the inability to create GMail events. We're aware and are working on it. You can find more info in the below link.

Not being able to disable the popup blocker is probably my biggest reason for staying with firefox for now. Some interfaces I use legitimately use popups sometimes. It would make a lot of sense to have an approved list of sites that are authorized to generate a popup, instead of just assuming they're all bad all the time.

Right on Rich. I can't believe it has taken Google this long and still cannot fix such a minor bug that is a major pain in the neck.

It can be done....by disable in option>under hood(scroll down)>web content tick off the check box, when you open browser hold Ctrl key.

Hey guys, I was in a site somewhere and hit the mailto thingy and ended up with gmail. Uh, has Google fixed this?

Hey guys,

We've implemented a whitelisting feature to the developer version of Google Chrome. More information can be found in the existing thread referenced below.

noobuser is correct...it can be done....by disable in option>under hood(scroll down)>web content tick off the check box, when you open browser hold Ctrl key.  It just worked for me.

Hey all,

With the latest Stable release of Google Chrome (version 3.0.195.21), the ability to whitelist sites for pop-ups is now available to users on the Stable channel. Instructions on how to enable pop-ups for a site are listed in the below reference. If you haven't already been auto-updated to the latest version, you can download it at http://www.google.com/chrome.

Hope this helps!

1. Choose "Options'' in drop down menu on top right of browser
2. Click 'Under the hood' tab
3. Under Privacy at top, click 'Content Settings'
4. Highlight 'popups' in the menu on the left
5. Then choose either allow all or choose 'make exceptions' to whitelist particular sites

(talk about buried!).
