Hi,

I want to open a child window from JavaScript.
I have
 new_window=window.open(url,name,'toolbar=no,location=no,width='+w+',height='+h+',scrollbars=1',',left=' + centerWidth+',top='  + centerHeight);

But I still see the address bar!
Why?

Your code is correct, but many modern browsers disabled the "location=no" due to security reasons (phishing).
In Firefox, there is an option to turn it on again:
dom.disable_window_open_feature.location
