Summary: [feature request] ability to say no to window.open → [RFE] ability to say no to window.open
Target Milestone: M14
Hmmm, no kidding ...
Is this a dup of http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=858 ?
Well I can't speak for the reporter, but I assume that means programatically creating new windows. Is there another way to do this with js/dom? I'm not sure what you mean by primacy.
*** Bug 14971 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I want a little button in my toolbar, labelled "windows", with a little icon of a window. It would normally be greyed out. Whenver a site wants to open a new window, either with JS or frames, or whatever, the toolbar button would enable. Clicking once would pop the window up. Clicking and holding would pop up a menu of windows currently in the queue, much like the "back" and "forward" buttons. The maximum queue length would be ten. Or three, depending on my mood. That's what I want.
Bug 29346 is very similar to this one, but I don't want to close 29346 because it has some other approaches to the problem, and also has lots of votes :)
Dan, I don't really think the open in new window pref thing is related to this since that is explicitly done by the user. But it would be good to have a "always in same/always in new/whatever page says" pref, see bug #15512.
How come this is still M14? M14 is already out!
Mass moving old milestone bugs to M16

This bug seems to be inactive, so marking it as a dup of bug 29346. According to mstoltz in bug 29346, there is code to allow blocking window.open (as part of configurable security policies, bug 858) but there's no interface for it yet. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 29346 ***

[ ] diable popups [X] disable popups other than current site. [ ] enable popups
email@example.com - thats a good idea. Here's what Opera has:  Accept pop-up windows  Refuse pop-up windows  Open pop-up windows in background the "backgrounded' windows are typically tabbed, so they're not *quite* as annoying as pop-unders (: When you select 'Refuse', it ignores both window.open and target="" popup windows. I have seen Flash files that have skirted around this before, but I'm unsure how.
I downloaded PopUp Stopper (it was free) and couldn't use it with Netscape because it not only stopped pop ups, it also stopped me from being able to click on a url in an email message and have it open in a browser window. Whatever solution is designed for pop ups, it has to allow windows to be intentionally opened that way. Also, I want to be able to click on a link on a website that has HTML code to open the link in a new browser window, I usually want it to really do that -- I often want to return to the first site without clicking on "Back" "Back" "Back"
