I'm using 2001070604 WinNT. I see this bug today but I don't see bug 89345 any more (I did see it yesterday).
shouldn't |window.open()| do the same thing as |ctrl+n|? That is, open a window and use the corresponding pref for whether to leave it blank or go to some page? It seems to be following the pref for me.... Granted, the behavior for |window.open("")| seems to be wrong. I'd expect that to always open a blank page.
Another side effect of this that I'm seeing is: have a page use window.open to create a new window that loads a slow loading page. You'll see your home page in the window before the new page loads in it.

bz: IE and NS4 treat |window.open()| as "open a blank window", so we should probably go back to doing that as well.
This is IMO a stop ship regression.

Yeah, loading the homepage before the real content is a big deal for users on bad connections.
OS: Windows NT → All
It apparently affects users on "good" connections, as well. I'm connected via a pretty decent cable modem, and it seems like the loading of the home page interrupts the requested page. Often (read: most of the time here) when clicking on a tag such as <A HREF="http://www.mozilla.org" target="_blank">this one</A> the requested page never gets displayed, only a small version of my home page.

this is preventing Flashplayer pages from loading on Win98 build 2001-07-20-06-0.9.2 -goto www.whatsathma.com -select a version of the demo a window pops open as expected with this site, but the page loaded is my home page not the Flash demo. note: this Flashplayer problem is not affecting mac or linux.....however I do occasionally get my homepage appearing in pop up windows when visiting home.netscape.com on both windows and mac, but not on linux.

branch only, not 100% reproducible, not a show stopper. Reducing severity to major to take off of blockers radar.

my bad...this does not affect Flash player. It is working fine. it just happened the page I was testing for flash attempted to open a new window with the Flash scene in it.....this bug prevented that from happening on my machines. others (jj) are not seeign the same behavior.
Seems to be a duplicate of bug 65993?
Yep, fixed in bug 65993 (which was reopened shortly after I filed this bug). *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 65993 ***
