    IE sp2 popup blocker and bookmarklets

    Hi,
    I recently updated to windows xp sp2 and in IE, theres a new popup blocker. I have a bookmarklet/favelet that opens a new window, but it's blocked by the popup blocker. How do I make it not block bookmarklets?

    Tools>Internet Options>Advanced Tab>Security>Allow active content to run in files on my computer

    That should stop local files on your system from being blocked. You can always just disabled the SP2 popup blocker for that site

    Tools>Internet Options>Privacy>Pop-up Blocker>Settings>add the url to your favlet.

    I can't block a site because it's a bookmarklet. More specifically, it's a Bugmenot bookmarklet. I tried allowing bugmenot.com, but that didn't work.
