The content of an opened window oscillates between original window content and the newly written content
Vidur, I see a window that is brought up, but it does not contain what it looks like it should. That makes it appear that the document.write() calls are not having the desired effect.
I just tested this example (on 10/17/99) in the M10 build on a Windows 98 machine and it still doesn't work right. There is now no longer any oscillations going on but the document.write's don't seem to be working. All that shows up in the popup window is the directory structure of the directory that contains the file.
In an attempt to get my bug list in order again, marking all the bugs I have currently as ASSIGNED.
I've submitted a barebones example that demonstrates the problem. I tried this example in the M12 build for a Windows 98 machine and it is still not working properly. The small popup window no longer oscillates, but the document.write() to it don't seem to work. All that appears in the popup window is the directroy structure of the directory that the file is in. If I replace the ONLOAD statement with the following: ONLOAD = "Dump('BODY',0,false)" then the writes take place to the main browser window and everything appears fine.
The fact that the document.writes don't work is probably related to bug 17351.
Fixed when we started spawning a subevent loop when opening a new window.
