As rodocop said, if this pref isn't shown yet, add it yourself. Yes it should be there out-of-box, but us here can do nothing about it.
Also not sure if meanwhile the config page "about:addons
" is included in the menu. If not, please type it into the urlbar.
In the last 2 years KM has taken mighty steps forward to catch up with FF again, just the menus etc. haven't followed yet
There has always been a native popup blocker
in KM, out-of-box, an all-or-nothing toggle:
Tools > Privacy > Block Popups
About testing other KM versions
, no need to be afraid if you make backup copies first. Always a good idea anyway.
First copy your whole profile folder (found by Edit>Config.>Profile Directory, check if prefs.js is dating from today, then go one step higher again and copy all). Profile folders contain stuff like bookmarks, session lists, passwords etc.
Then copy the whole KM program folder. This one "usually" contains all macros, native and user-additions, along with FF-addons, skin config etc. They are still here by tradition, not in the profile folder. Still very handy for sharing stuff between multiple profiles, and no prob if you're aware of this.
Actually most of us forum regulars here have a couple different KM versions installed, and/or use different profile folders for different purposes, for testing, supporting etc., each one independant from the other installations/profiles.
This used to be extremely easy just by unzipping the portable version (=7z) into a NEW folder
The main difference to the exe-version is that the KM program folder contains an empty file named "profile.ini
". If it's there, KM will look for the user profile folders inside its own program folder, not in windows user appdata folder or wherever. You can later easily switch between portable or setup versions, that is between profile locations, just by manually creating or deleting a file with that name. And then copying over the contents of the previous profile folder.
Of course, for portable versions you must make sure you have writing rights in that folder, and there start the probs with modern Windows versions. Most people install into the default "c:/programs" folder, which is write-protected by Windows for security reasons. And if they don't know how to allow themselves to write into the PROFILE folder inside, it gets a bit complicated. And got really WEIRD when Win7 started to secretly mess with such "legacy" portable apps, by secretly redirecting write attempts into an appdata folder but not all reading attempts, or whatever it does exactly.
Anyway, at least backup the profile folder, then take a portable KM 7z-version and unzip it into a new, different folder, and you're on the safe side.
