Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Using Firefox 1.0 with Windows 2000.
Opening a link from Frame1 with a target=Frame2 works fine for regular links
like http://www.website.com/directions.htm.  But if the link in Frame1 is
executing a Perl script like
http://www.website.com/cgi-bin/cal/calendar.pl?orgdir=engineering with a
target=Frame2, the Perl script works fine but the resulting page opens in Frame1
which is the originating frame, not in Frame2.

The Perl script works as expected – opening in Frame2 - in IE6 and Netscape 4.7.

Firefox is great!  Thank you.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on the (cgi) link in Frame1 which has a target=Frame2
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Link opens in Frame1 which is the originating frame.  The target was set to Frame2.

Expected Results:  
Open the cgi results page in Frame2

Works fine in IE6 and Netscape 4.7
Can you provide the code that is used as an attachement here? A reduced testcase
would be ideal. I doubt that this is an issue with Firefox.

I had reproduced this problem for the last few days, but as of today 2004-11-23,
the frame targeting is working fine for the "xxx.pl?xxx" page in question.  The
websites used for testing are mine and I have not changed anything in them.  I
might have updated a couple of Firefox 1.0 extensions, but they would seem to be
unrelated to this frame targeting problem.  I also see quite a few frame
targeting bugs being reported.  But my problem seems to have gone away, like
something has been updated in Firefox, but unknown to me!

Thank you.
