The "smart" popup policy doesn't work anymore on http://www.sharereactor.com. Clicking on any
link will open popups, even if the policy is set to "deny".

Can you create a separate testcase of it and attach it to this report, please? The site seems to be 
down for me.

Testcase for sharereactor.com popup code
Comment 3 Ralf Holzer 2003-06-01 17:06:44 UTC
The reason why the policy fails here, is that the JavaScript code calls a form.submit(). 
The form has a target with a non-existent frame name, so it will open a new window. 
The existing popup blocking code is not called at all.  
I tried to fix this myself, the patch is attached. Its a little ugly because it duplicates the 
MessageBox code from kjs_bindings.cpp. It basically checks the following things: 
1) Is the current page not within a frameset? -> Ask/Deny 
2) Does a frame with the form target exist somewhere? -> Allow submit 
3) Is no target specified for form? -> Allow submit 
I hope the code is not too messy. I've seen several pages now that use this trick 
to get around popup blockers and its really getting on my nerves.
