When I try to call window.open("http://ed.agadak.net") from http://ed.agadak.net/app/
I get an exception:
[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIDOMJSWindow.open]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: http://ed.agadak.net/app/ :: onClick :: line 26" data: no]
This is problematic for the Marketplace app for bug 738816 which relies on Persona for login and that opens up a new window.
I wonder if the underlying issue is similar to bug 729853? I know there's been a lot of problems with being able to open pop-ups, windows, or anything that steps outside of the initial chromeless content presented to a user.
I get these warnings when trying to open a window from an app:

I have a tryserver debug build that has windows opening, but the main window no longer scrolls. This was just changing the <xul:browser type="content-primary"> instead of just type="content".

This build lets me log into Marketplace with Persona through the newly opened window, but the only way I can scroll in the main window is by clicking the page and using arrows/spacebar (mousescroll doesn't work and no scrollbars to drag).

Allows opening windows but first window doesn't have scrollbars.
Felipe or Myk - Could you look at this?
Would be nice to know how many apps this effects. Leaving it as a blocker for now, but since there is a way to navigate the window manually I'm saying a "soft" blocker.
Investigation needed on the following applications:
- Ta-Da List
- Lord of Ultima
- Times Crossword
- Sky Guide
Changing the browser type to content-primary doesn't prevent scrolling in an app I'm using to test. So maybe the scrolling problem is app-specific.
Mardak: how can I install your app? I went to http://ed.agadak.net/app/, and it wasn't clear how to install the app from there.
The manifest is at http://ed.agadak.net/manifest.webapp, and I've just been installing it through the web console in Firefox:
There's various links on the page where you can navigate away, e.g., to youtube, and the page doesn't have scrollbars. But even without navigation, the marketplace app loses its scrollbars for me on the initial load.
Based on testing so far, i haven't seen this bug occur often involving the "same" domain. Usually so far I've seen a higher likelihood when it's opening a pop-up or window on a different domain. I don't think this is a marketplace beta blocker.
Ed - Is this fixed as a result of the bug dependency?
Fixed by bug 732631.
Verified on windows 7 64-bit and OS X 10.6.8.
