Is it possible to remove/hide the browsers address bar or toolbar using Javascript for IE 7?
Im using the code below but I still see the address bar. Also, when the new page displays the exsisting ones data disappears and says [object], any ideas? Thanks.

"javascript: window.open("""+prodID+""",""Invoices"",""toolbar=no,scrollbars=no,location=no,resizable=no,width=625,height=550,left225,top=120"");"

We think the address bar is also important for users to see in pop-up windows. A missing address bar creates a chance for a fraudster to forge an address of their own. To help thwart that, IE7 will show the address bar on all internet windows to help users see where they are. IE7 will also help users avoid fraudulent sites if users choose to use the Phishing Filter to check a site for known phishing activity.

The first argument must be an Url, and on my computer the toolbar is hidden. May be it depends on a local setting.
Avoid the javascript: protocol, unuseful and unsafe.
<input type="button" onclick='window.open("test.html","Invoices","toolbar=no,scrollbars=no,location=no,resizable=no,width=625,height=550,left225,top=120");'>

Open in new window

It depends on a local setting, you can see in the attached screenshot, if theentry enclosed in black square is enabled then it will work
