My window.opener adjustment recently checked in for bug 263844 applies only to tabbed windows in Firefox Aviary. This bug report was filed against Mozilla 1.7.1 20040707. My interpretation of the rather terse steps to reproduce is that a window's opener property is cleared upon opening another window. Luckily I had lying around a testcase suitable to substitute for the testcase missing from this bug report. I can't reproduce the bug in either a recent Firefox build or a Mozilla 1.8a2 build I happen to have.
Reporter, please attach a testcase showing the problem (using https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?bugid=265733&action=enter)
I have a testcase where I fetch a variable in a grandparent window from the child window with opener.opener.VariableName and it works as expected in Mozilla 1.8b build 2005011505 and Firefox 1.0 build 20041107 (XP Pro SP2 here). Since we got no reply from the reporter for a long time and since Dan can't reproduce the bug, I am resolving as WORKSFORME
