#33 Re: problems in window.open() and partial solution

I had the same problem with my web application. The only (ugly) solution I found is to add the following line before calling window.open() with both 'modal=1' and 'dialog=1' features

netscape.security.PrivilegeManager.enablePrivilege('UniversalBrowserWrite');

Executing this line of script, FF2 prompt the user to allow or deny this privilege setting (the dialog box message it's not so clear for a very 'basic' user)

This dialog box also contains a checkbox for "remembering the choice" that could be very dangerous if the user say "remeber" and then "deny" (another good question could be: is there any way to reset this setting?)

About the feature to bringing in front an opened window, I see that FF2 default javascript settings (options/content/enable javascript -> advanced) is "off", buty in FF1.5 was "on".

I hope to get a good workaround from people at mozilla as soon as possible.
