Should probably add a Cookie Manager here.

Sounds like the pop-ups are being generated locally by the browser,
and do not involve any interaction with the server.

The JMeter proxy can only capture requests actually sent to the server.

Have you set any filters in the proxy? It's easy to accidentally exclude pages.

[Could Javascript can be used to download pages directly from the
server bypassing the proxy? This would explain what you are seeing,
but seems a broken design to me.]
