You need to change the "Handlers" setting. From this page:

  1. Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings > Show advanced settings.
  3. In the "Privacy" section, click Content settings.
  4. In the dialog that appears, find the “Handlers” section. Click Manage handlers.
  5. Use the drop-down menu next to a listed protocol to select the web service that should be used by default.

If that doesn't work then you can try deleting the correct line from the state file. Instructions here shold help get you started, there for google-chrome, but should be close enough. You basically find the line in your state file, delete it, and that makes the popup show again.
