This site pops up a full-size navigitor window as a side effect of loading the
original url, despite my having set my preference to suppress pop-ups.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. load the url
2.
3.




Whatever this little trick is, I hope it doesn't become widespread...

that site uses 
function loadpopup()
{
document.flauncher.submit();
focus();
setTimeout('focus()',2000);
}

which is an already known workaround.
