Detail form is used to show all the attributes of an object, because it is sometimes impossible to display them all in a table. It is also used to add new data records.

Detail form is show in a Javascript pop-up window. It is not a real window, it's javascript window, so it won't be blocked by the browser's pop-up blocker:
