Cant remove URL from Title in Popup - Mozilla / Firefox defect?
Posted on 2006-04-05
Opening a popup window, either with html page, or contents of DIV, even though you specify the title, Mozilla / Firefox put the site URL infront of title, so user cannot see real page title in a small popup. Behaviour is same in Moz and FF whether popup blocker is turned on or off, no difference.
This annoyance robs user of correct page information. Surely can be fixed, if not, it is big flaw in Moz / FF. It only happens in JS popup window, not a page link. MSIE first shows URL, but then correct title when page loads. I try
win.document.write("<TITLE>" + divName + " Information</TITLE>");
win.document.title = divName + "Information";
Neither fix Moz/FF, the site URL is always in front, hiding real title. Need to eliminate URL from Title, as in MSIE.
These parameters do not affect title display of the popup window, so please not suggest them -
win = window.open(pg,"","height=550,width=470,location=0,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,status=0,toolbar=0");
I did extensive search on expert exchange site, no one has answered this question fully/correctly.
