Closed Bug 243839 Opened 20 years ago Closed 20 years ago
On some websites clicking on a link opens a windows that is 3/4 off screen, and sometimes errors
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040421 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040421 Go to the following text on the above URL, at the bottom of the page : -------------------------------------------- For a full explanation of the difference between "digital", "conventional" and "traditional" print sizes, click here. -------------------------------------------- Click on the "here" of click here. It is so annoying and I get this on many websites. I run large fonts at 1024x768 on a 17" TFT flat screen LCD monitor. Ilka Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual Results: New Window off-screen (the most annoying problem), and occasionally errors. Expected Results: Open the window, either in a new tab, or fully on-screen.
WFM Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040515 I tested this first popups unblocked, then blocked, and both times the popup covered the left half of my screen from top to bottom. I´m working on 800x600 on Win98, cookies allowed for session. The JS console came up and was showing me a lot of warnings. I don´t often see popups, though enabled, I remember some to be shown centered to the lower right edge of the window, so you see only a fourth of them, and they don´t cover your window unwantedly. If they are annoying kill them, if you want to see them, maximize or drag.
Ilka: This'll be all better if you'll unmaximize your browser window and fix its restored position. Even without that, a nightly build made 2004-05-10 or later (trunk or 1.7 branch) will force the window entirely onscreen. Admittedly it would be better if a new, unpositioned window's default position were relative to the current browser's position, maximized or not. That will fall out of the patch in bug 203590. Um, I don't know what the "and sometimes errors" part of this bug's summary refers to. If you want to bring attention to that, whatever it is, please file a new bug for that problem alone. Hermann: It's difficult to lay down general rules of behaviour without specifying whether the test window was explicitly positioned by script. Barring bugs in the explicit positioning code, this bug probably refers to unpositioned windows. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 240381 ***
