Modifying Pop-up Blocker Settings For HallNET (Mozilla Firefox)

Hallnet uses the pop-up window pictured below as mechanism to disconnect you from the network.

Logout Window

This window is important, since all students are only allowed to have one device connected to Hallnet at a time. This means that if you are using someone else's computer to connect wirelessly, it is important that you disconnect from the network on their computer, as it may prevent you from logging in on your own computer.
