Pop-ups do not open (Mozilla Firefox, Mac)

The SAP system uses pop-up windows. Pop-up windows are blocked by default in the Firefox browser, and a message will appear on the screen about allowing them. In the SAP system's user interface the question will appear briefly, but immediately disappear. In practice, however, you can notice the problem when invoices and memos will not open.
