Pop-up Blockers: Pop-up blocker software will prevent the player window from opening. Examples of ‘pop-up’ blocker software include the Google and Yahoo Toolbars, Zone Alarm, Norton Internet Security. Most ‘pop-up blocker’ software can be temporarily disable by holding down the <Crtl> key while you click on the listen link. MAC USERS – You can disable the pop-up blocker for just one window by holding down the control ‘z’ while clicking on the link.
You can find out if you have a toolbar running with a built-in pop-up blocker feature by doing the following:
Open Internet Explorer, Click on View on the top of the window; click Toolbar at the top of the list. Check the list of current toolbars; you should have:
Address Bar Links
Lock the Toolbars
Any other item that differs from this list could be a toolbar that includes a pop-up blocker. At this point, you are going to need to look into the options of the toolbar listed to find out how to disable the pop-up blocker feature or how to add the station you want to listen to to the allowed pop-ups.
Firewalls: Many places of business are employing the use of a firewall to keep a handle on the Internet traffic going to and from their network. A firewall is configured to help stop malicious activities from harming the network.
