    Update:
    Somewhere on this thread (or another) I mentioned having a problem with the incessant 'Mypal has blocked this popup' popup, which was preventing me from doing online shopping. A permanent fix has been found. Go to:
    about:config and set "dom.disable_open_during_load" to false.
    This apparently disables the onboard popup blocker, so you will need to install a replacement. I have Adblock Latitude' and 'Popup Blocker Ultimate', which I usually keep disabled until a site gets obnoxious.

    Just installed Mypal 64 portable on XP64.
    Works great so far.
    Thanks!

    Addenda: This solution failed after a couple days. Mypal appears to have some sort of component like 'Windows File Protection' that resets any changes made to default as soon as you shutdown. It looks like I will have to jettison Mypal, as its onboard popup blocker is worse than any nagware.
