I haven't used Phoenix, but I've used Mozilla + prefbar and Galeon. The
most pressing problem with popup blocking, to my mind, is that no visual
cue is given when the browser indeed blocks a popup. When I've got
blocking enabled, and I land on a site which seems to malfunction, I can
try again with blocking disabled and see if that helps.
I imagine a small widget in the browsers' status bar that would shortly
flash a red light (or whatever 'warning color' the locale knows) when a
popup is blocked. When clicked upon, it could show a window allowing to
change the popup preference for the current URL.
