Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1a) Gecko/20020610 This is a strange bug which I observe for a long time with Linux and Windows. When you go to certain pages (clicking on a link or from bookmarks), the page opens and a new windo comes up with the same page. The new window is aligned to the lower right corner of the screen and covers about 3/4. Pages where I see it are: http://www.geocities.com/pratiksolanki/howto.html http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mensa-uw/ It only happens when you come to that page for the first time (or haven't been there for long). Clearing the cache or restarting does not bring the effect back. I was not able to see something in the source which would create that new window. I have no idea which component this is, sorry, Matti. pi
I tried again to reproduce it on another machine. This is really a Murphy bug, you cannot reproduce intentionally. It does happens on different machines, though. pi
Created attachment 88614 [details] Page which caused the problem. I accessed http://www.geocities.com/pratiksolanki/howto.html which opened the page plus a popup window as described earlier. To be more specific: It opens with the exact same URL in the address bar but remains completely empty. This attachment is the page above save when the problem showed up. pi
I can not reproduce that bug with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530 and can not remember to such effects.
Created attachment 89770 [details] Another page with the same problem The source of a page which generates the problem. It seems to be related to the time between the calls of this page if the problem shows up or not. Next attachment will show how this looks on screen. pi
Created attachment 89771 [details] Screenshot of the problem Interesting: If I call the previous attachment the problem also shows up. pi
It hasn't happened in a long time. Goodbye bug. pi
