Steps to Reproduce:
Go to the url and click on one of the buttons

Actual Results:  We stay at the homepage

Expected Results:  Go in the linked page (works in netscape 4.72)

This site consists of frames inside frames.
The index.html is frameset which has a frame.  This frame is a html page which
is a frameset, which has a frame.  This frame is a html page which is a
frameset, which has a frame.  This frame is a html page which is a frameset,
which has multiple frames.  One of the frames is search.asp which has the two
links in it.

The url for one of the two links call javascript which do:
parent.parent.parent.topframe.main.frame_center_down.location.href="rub_list/frame_rub_list.asp";

The other link is similar.

The problem might be connected to the number of nested frames.

Actually, this may be a Security issue. In the Mozilla JavaScript console,
there is this error: 


Error:    uncaught exception: [Exception..."Access to property denied"
code:     1010
nsresult: NS_ERROR_DOM_PROP_ACCESS_DENIED
location: http://pronet1.bvdep.com/fr/htm/mainframe.asp
Line      65

 Hello,

    I tested the site (http://www.pagesdor.be/) this morning, it works fine.
Maybe it
was a bit overloaded friday.

Reopening and changing summary. The "rues" button works, but the "index" button
does not. I'm seeing the same thing Phil Schwartau saw. Clicking on the "index"
button throws a javascript error.

function ShowRubricList()
		{
			SaveSearch();
			parent.topframe.location.href = "rub_list/frame_rub_list.asp?NoCache=" + Math.random();
		}

this is the bad code. Dunno what is wrong with that.
Please note that everything is done with layers and all the other functions are
documents.layers and document.all, but not this one. It's a wonder the page lays
our correctly.
Also still getting the security error and a few more Invalid Dom js errors.
Sending to evanglism, they need to design their site with something else than
frontpage express (or related).

I can't reproduce this on the above site anymore, but from looking at the site I
think the problem is that caps is preventing setting location.href across
domains, which it shouldn't. This is covered by bug 56053. I don't think the
frames are the issue.
