Turning the popup blocker off completly causes it to still block popups.

Also, Popups opened from within a Flash site with this actionScript command:

getURL("javascript:window.open('url', 'window', 'options')"); 

as my sample page demonstrates (click the blue button) fails most of the time,
even if you turn off popup blocking or allow the domain.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open http://www.intellifolios.com/login/test.html
2. Click the blue button.
3. If the popup opens the first time, close it, and click it again.

Actual Results:  
The popup fails to open.

Expected Results:  
The popup should open.

Your testcase generates the following error:

Error: doWindow is not defined
Source File: javascript:doWindow('http://www.google.com', 300, 300)
Line: 1

It fails to open a window in both IE 5.5 and Firefox 1.0PR

I apologize, I accidently changed the SWF file.

It's back now, and the bug still exists.

It works for me, was able to open the window about 10-15 times in a row with no
problems on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10

If you have any extensions installed could you please try disabling them and
retest. Also, when the popups fail to appear does the popup blocked icon appear
in the bottom right of the status bar?

Sorry about this, guys. Turns out that it's Tabbrowser Extensions which is
causing the problems.

Firefox is awesome!
