I'm designing a back end for a corporate web site, and it uses Javascript to
create pop up windows for user input, or displaying information.

If the sidebar is switched on, when any new browser windows are created the
sidebar shows up in the newly created windows too. 

Perhaps in future releases the browser could detect if the window is meant to
have no toolbars, and not show the sidebar if all menus, toolbars, etc are
turned off in the new window.

This is by no means urgent or a massive problem, but implementing this at some
stage would be a usefull feature.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure that the sidebar is showing
2. Click a button on a web page that triggers a javascript to open a new browser
window
Actual Results:  
New window was created with sidebar showing.

Expected Results:  
New window without sidebar.

For general web surfer use this shouldnt be an issue, but the site im designing
opens up windows without any tool bars to get some user input or display some
information.

Having the sidebar showing in all newly created windows makes my hard work look
untidy.
