I just went through this bug. Elig, the Dude did really nice investigation on this bug. Links on this site seem pretty dead. The reason why these links are dead because of use of "target". In actual site, provided by Elig, target="mainmovies" is used in links. I simulated the problem. STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 1] Visit URL http://bubblegum/desale/bug8259/bug8259.html [Here I'm using target="_new"] 2] It will show you 6 navigation buttons on upper-left corner. 3] Click any of those navigation buttons. EXPECTED RESULTS: On clicking those buttons, it should open another window [Since target="_new"] to take you to that link. ACTUAL RESULTS: Nothing happens. Links seem pretty dead. DESFCRIPTION: 1] Now visit URL http://bubblegum/desale/bug8259/tempbug8259.html [Here I'm not using target.] So supposed to work fine. 2] It will show you 6 navigation buttons on upper-left corner. 3] Click any of those navigation buttons. EXPECTED RESULTS: On clicking those buttons, it take you to appropriate link. ACTUAL RESULTS: This time you'll see "File not found", That means its working. Link is not dead. So this use of target in links is causing the problem. Builds I used are 1999-06-16-08.

Based on attachment 382 [details], I am marking this WORKSFORME. Clicking on the link "New releases" in that attachment opens a new window in both viewer and apprunner. I can't test the internal pages on bubblegum. Whoever verifies should check those. I'm tested on viewer and apprunner, Linux, 1999-09-03-11-M11
Whiteboard:  Need minimal test case for document[n].prop failure
Target Milestone: M11
Looking at this bug now, I notice that if I put: document.write("<p>"); before document.write("document.src="); document.write(document.src); // ... then I get all the correct output[*]. So there's a document.write bug here, perhaps, but document[num] appears to be working to order. [*] document.src=zero.gif document.src=one.gif document.src=two.gif And yet, the page in question doesn't work. Someone should develop a minimal test case that shows this problem in action, and attach it here. There's too much going on on that page to debug effectively. (The test case above doesn't fail the same way, or the document.src references would give errors.) Can you do that, Prashant? I think this _is_ a beta issue, so the sooner we can get this test case the better.
The document.write problem is probably related to 11141 and should be fixed for beta 1.
Depends on: 11141
I'm trying to narrow down the problem. As soon as I create new testcase I'm gonna post it.
