I am using a JavaScript to reframe orphan pages that live in the first subirectory below the primary. The code is:

passpage = document.URL
if (top.location == self.location)
top.location.href="../master.html?" + passpage

IE, Opera, Mozilla, and others parse this correctly as:


Firefox gives me:


Has anyone else run into this? Are there any solutions? Thanks

Do you mean you're getting the wrong URL for example.com/sub/master.html?

How about using the absolute URL for top.location.href - then no matter how deep your orphan pages may be in the directory structure, the same script will always find master.html
