Prevent or hide javascript error

How can I prevent error messages showing on the statusbar of the browser?

I have an object (newwin = window.open(...)) that is only created by clicking a button but there is always a check to see is newwin is already open.

So when I enter the page, newwin is not existing and javascript check shows me the error in the statusbar saying: 'newwin' is undefined.

How can I hide or even prevent that error?

Thanks in advance.
