User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021029 Phoenix/0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021029 Phoenix/0.4

Clicking on a link that uses javascript to open a new window fails when the
following preferences are set:

(X) Reject Popup windows

and the domain (www.vtsportbike.net) is added into the accept list.

Disabling the popup blocking causes the link to function correctly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to provided url.
2. Enable popup blocking
3. Add (www.vtsportbike.net) to accept list
4. Click 'Test Link'
5. No window opens.
6. Dispable popup blocking
7. Click link.
8. Window popus up.


Actual Results:  
Nothing happens.

Also, the little 'I' in the bottom left corner does not show to indicate a popup
has been blocked.

Expected Results:  
Should have opened a smaller window.  The page results in a 404, but that's
expected.

Phoenix popup blocking feature only blocks popups that the user never requested
(ie. popups that try to open themselves on load or on unload of the page).
"Normal "popups aren't blocked.

That said, your page WFM with Phoenix 20021119 on w2k. 
Could you please try with a recent build and a new profile?

Well, it seems to work now.  I've downloaded the latest nightly build.  Either
than fixed it or it was something else entirely.

Thanks.
