    Dreamweaver CS6 - Popups work in Chrome but not Explorer


      I am working with the "Open Browser Window" attribute. The popups open *almost* perfectly in Google Chrome (separate window, correct size, scrollbars, etc.), but when I click the same link in Internet Explorer it goes a bit haywire opening a couple other popup links from the page AND opening the initial link in a new tab. 


      My internet options are set correctly to "Always open popups in a new window".  My question is, is there a petition to have Internet Explorer removed from our existence?  (Kidding!)  If someone has a solution for this Explorer condition, I will appreciate the guidance.


      Regarding *almost* perfectly, my popup scrollbars seem to be frozen in Google Chrome - they are present, but they don't move.  Any ideas?

          Any chance you could give us a link to the page, please? That way we could examine the code and the effect you are describing.

            The site is not on a server yet, so no link.  I'm kind of learning as I go, so can you tell me, specifically, which code you need and I'll copy it here if the code below isn't it?


            This is the code for the links:


                <table width="250" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">


                    <td width="95" height="300"> </td>

                    <td width="155" valign="top" class="navtext" onclick="MM_openBrWindow('extras.html','Extras','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,width=650,h eight=620')" onfocus="MM_openBrWindow('extras.html','Extras','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,width=650,h eight=620')"><a href="projector.html" target="new" onclick="MM_openBrWindow('projector.html','projector','scrollbars=yes,width=650,height=62 0')" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('servicesmain','','images/services/1projector.jpg',1)">Custom Projector Package</a><br />

                      <a href="ceremonies.html" target="new" onclick="MM_openBrWindow('ceremonies.html','ceremonies','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,wid th=650,height=620')" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('servicesmain','','images/services/2ceremonies.jpg',1)">Wedding Ceremonies</a><br />

            This is the code for an individual popup window:



            <div id="popup">

              <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="15">


                  <td align="center" valign="bottom"><img src="images/popuplogo.png" width="196" height="75" /></td>

                  <td align="center" valign="bottom"><img src="images/pop7corporate.png" width="334" height="36" /></td>



                  <td colspan="2"><img src="images/7corporate.png" width="590" height="299" /></td>



                  <td colspan="2" class="textwhite"><p>There&rsquo;s nothing like the pressure of planning a corporate party.

              <td width="155" valign="top" class="navtext" onclick="MM_openBrWindow('extras.html','Extras','scrollbars=yes,resiz able=yes,width=650,height=620')" onfocus="MM_openBrWindow('extras.html','Extras','scrollbars=yes,resiz able=yes,width=650,height=620')">


              You're applying the OBW behavior to the table cell? And you are doing it with an onclick AND an onfocus event?


              First of all, I would never apply a behavior to a structural element like a table cell, and second when you click on something you also give focus to it, so that would explain your double windows. Finally clicking on anything in that cell will also give focus to the cell. I would remove all behaviors from your table cells by changing that to this -


              <td width="155" valign="top" class="navtext">

                Removing the links from the table appears to have been the fix - awesome!  (Using tables = old habits)  When adding the OBW behavior, the onfocus event was added automatically.  This is not the case when placed in a DIV, so that's good.


                However, IE still does not honor my specified popup width of 620px - it is opening much wider.  And, the scrollbars still do not work in Chrome.

                  After applying a behavior, you have an option to change the event to any of the others available. In fact, I don't see that onfocus is the default - it looks to me like onclick is. But that's because I was applying it to a link and not to a table cell.


                  I'm not sure that browsers are required to follow your window specifications with this behavior.
