On the above page, about half way down, is the phrase "The poster announcing this open day is here." 'here' is a link with an associated script to open a new window for the page, but though the page is requested by the browser, it fails to display.
Problem partially solved: when the href associated with the new page is set to '#' (but window.open() still given the proper page name), the new window DOES open with the correct page. The testcase page has been changed because of this. However, the original case that didn't work with Mozilla but was fine with Netscape 4.74 and MSIE was a bit worrying. (firstname.lastname@example.org) The form of the failed call was <a href="/blah.html" target="_popup" onClick="window.open('/blah.html', '_popup', 'width=446,height=319,menubar=0,resizable=0,scrollbars=0); return 1;">TEXT</a> It works with the href='#' and the target=.. removed.
Sorry, me again. Regular failure case: http://silversurfers.uk.com/tikka/index2.shtml Click on the "(C) Silver Surfers MM" text in the bottom right of this page. A new window opens but nothing appears. After three or four MIDDLE clicks of the mouse, it does appear.
Browser, not engine. --> DOM Level 0
This bug has been marked "future" because the original netscape engineer working on this is over-burdened. If you feel this is an error, that you or another known resource will be working on this bug,or if it blocks your work in some way -- please attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration.
First case WORKSFORME 20000819 WinNT4. Second one tries to load itself in the first one's popup! But nothing loads, although the title is there. If I restart Moz, the second case works as well. <shrug> Gerv
Both test cases work for me on Linux build 2000091908.
Setting bug status to New. Bugs whaich have been triaged to a target milestone should not be Unconfirmed.
Seems to work on Linux nightly build 2000100308.
Worksforme, Win2k, mozilla build from last-week-or-so.
