Firefox Pop-up icon

I have been using Firefox 1.0 for a couple of days now on my xp home sp2 system. Although Pop-Up blocking is activated in tools/options I can't see any sort of desktop, task bar,tool bar icon at all. Perhaps it's meant to be like this ,I would appreciate some advice.

Try pressing F11 key on the top of your keyboard (meant for full screen).

I,ve tried full screen but still can't see icon. Where should icon appear? task or tool bar?

What sort of icon are you looking for?

This is from the Firefox help.

When a Popup Window Has Been Blocked.

Every time a popup is blocked, an icon is displayed in the Firefox status bar to indicate that a popup has been blocked.

I have been on the net quite a lot in last couple of days and have yet to have a pop up warning/icon. I will give it a few more days to see what happens.

Go to click here

Firefox should display just below the toolbar "Firefox prevented this site from opening pop-up windows...".
