you are right that it will work with a popup, actually it will also work if you put the popup code int he <body onload=""> tag; however i have noticed that with the new IE7 or firefox when you have tabs it will not do this.

So lets say you load it up but the user has 2 other tabs open it will not resize but if you only have one page it should.

I will see if i can figure out something.


you are right, another way to solve my problem...
do you know how to reload my page?

"window.location.reload()" works fine with javascript and IE but with Firefox it doesn't work..

do you know why?


I got it

<body onresize="javascript:window.location.href=window.location.href;">
