User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 This new feature since 1.7 is a serious problem for web-apps, which work with multiple windows. The normal way to open a new window in web-apps is the "onload"-event in <body>-tag. It is not possible to open a new window via "click", because some form-inputs must be checked or validated on server. After this checking, the new window can be opened, and this is done via "onload". So the counter is incremented every time a new window is opened till it reaches the default configuration number of 20. Then every new window is blocked. Even if the same window is used (same windowname) the window.open is blocked after a while. THIS MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE IN CONJUNCTION WITH WEB-APPS!! Maybe this feature is useful for "normal browsing", but not for web-apps. The only workaround for this problem is to set the pref "dom.popup_maximum" to a very high value (e.g. 100.000). But this cannot be done via user-interface! How could this problem be solved? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
