Here is a link I was given to download a paper at Microsoft. Clicking on it
brings up a JavaScript window where you need to click "OK" to accept the
copyright. Doing so loads up the _LAST_ page you were on, and does not bring up
the paper.

This works in Konqueror.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
As above

Actual Results:  Reloads last page viewed

Expected Results:  Load page I wanted
combination of two factors:

1) bad browser sniffing:
if ((document.layers) || (document.all)) {
  if (document.layers) {
     [do stuff]
  } else {
     [do other stuff]
} else {
  [do more stuff]

2) I bet you've got popups blocked.  The javascript tries to open the file
you're after in a popup window.  It worked fine for me after I turned off popup
blocking (Win98SE, RC2)

Confirming, ->Tech evangelism to get the browser sniffing fixed

Yes, I have "Open Unrequested Windows" unchecked, but "Open a link in a new
Window" _is_ checked. I would have assumed that this would allow such a link to
work correctly -- it usually does. 
The "OK" button is in an alert box, not within the page.  The popup is therefore
triggered by inline javascript in the page body which executes as the page loads.

As I understand it, "Open link in new window" allows windows to be opened if the
javascript is being executed as the result of a user action within the page
itself (alert boxes are kinda special)
