How to keep pop-up blockers away from your sweet, sweet JSTOR articles!

Have you ever found the perfect article on JSTOR only to click "Download PDF" and watch helplessly as nothing happens? We imagine it left you feeling a little irritable.

We’re sorry you had to deal with that. (And hope you didn’t break your computer.) We're aware of how distressing it is to finally find that perfect article only to have it snatched away. But don’t worry! You’re not alone with this sneaky problem.

Web browsers generally have a default setting that blocks all pop-ups. While this is mostly good for the health of your computer (and your personal sanity) pop-up blockers can’t differentiate between ads for the latest internet scam and pop up PDFs of scholarly articles. This is something that users have to manually change within their browser settings. Sound scary? We promise that it’s not.
Each browser has a slightly different way of changing these settings, so we’re going to walk you through the most common. Furthermore, some browsers act differently on Macs and PCs, but we’ll cover the differences when we get to those.

For directions on how to enable pop-up blockers on different browsers, Internet Explorer (IE), Google Chrome, FireFox, Safari and For iPad and iPhone users please go to:
