Hi guys,

would appreciate some help here...

I have a JS array, call it Links where i am storing all absolute external urls to other domains that I want to JS redirect thru window.open() later on page

the array is stored within an internal script and is invoked in the following way:

<A onmouseover="window.status=Links[0];return true" onclick=window.open(Links[0]) onmouseout="window.status=''; return true" href="javascript:void(0)">some anchor</A>

the strangest thing is:

Firefox understands Links[0] as first element of this array at onclick and opens a window for this url BUT doesnt recognize it for onmouseover!

to make it even funnier if you call alert(Links[0]) at onmouseover - it bloody works fine :)

any clues guys?

i cant believe it's a firefox bug - should be my lame hands:)
