IE7 / IFrame's / Link Target incorrectly opening a new window
Posted on 2007-04-11
With IE7 I'm having a problem. We have a portal that has a navigation menu in an IFrame. When you click a link, it changes the conent on the main IFrame with the target part of the link. The problem is, when clicking on the navigation links, the target no longer works when you switch between domains.
For instance, the first three links I click on in domain 1 stay in the main content window... the fourth link is in another domain, and it also appears in the content window. From that point on, every link opens in a new window. This has never been the behavior before, clearly something in IE7 has changed. Why is this happening and what can I do to avoid it... when I specify a target IFrame I want my content to appear in that IFrame, not a new window (that IFrame does exist also).
