A few times this past year I've encountered problems with the Google Toolbar popup blocker blocking user-initiated popups. I'm all for suppressing uninitiated popup and popunder windows, but I don't like a toolbar that blocks windows that the user asked - by clicking - to open.
Is it reasonable to assemble a list of Use Cases where the google toolbar blocks a popup?
examples below are in shorthand to briefly describe the method and trigger, the are not valid syntax
window.open() triggered by body.onload()
<a href="page.htm" target="_blank" onclick="dosomething()">
** fixed by:
<a href="page.htm" target="_blank" onclick="dosomething();window.open('page.htm');return false;">
<a target="_blank"> when <a> is within <iframe> and <iframe> src is on another domain
please contribute your observations, and perhaps we'll reverse-engineer this thing and figure out what we're not allowed to do.
or... is this info already published anywhere?
