How to get the session timeout warning to display?

I know under Security Controls -> Session Settings, there is a setting: Disable session timeout warning popup

The Salesforce documentation says: Determines whether the system prompts inactive users with a timeout warning message. Users are prompted 30 seconds before timeout as specified by theTimeout value.

I have never seen the timeout warning popup. I tend to use Firefox or Chrome to access my Salesforce orgs. Is there a trick to getting this popup to display?

May be that your Browser isn't showing pop-ups since it is blocked by default. Since this pretty small it's often overlooked, do you see/look out for an icon like this(User-added image) at the end of the Address Bar ?

Good point, let me try disabling the pop-up blocker then report back. Thanks.

Deepak you are correct, it is my browser pop-up blocker that blocked the Salesforce session timeout pop-up windows. Thanks much!
