    It watches for input events that come from the user which trigger  
the popup.  Clicks in particular.  We can track the action that  
causes the popup to happen and make decisions based on that.

    For example we had more strict policies with respect to what was  
allowed during SSL sessions (such as no insecure images on secure  
pages, and other form posting rules) but in the end we had to match  
NS and IE.  Some of these things have since been fixed in other  
browsers and we were able to re-introduce our changes.
