Description David Kaplan 2002-12-04 20:20:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020710

Description of problem:
I recently tried to download a scientific paper from a site.  The site provides
a link that is attached to some javascript code that is supposed to open up a
new window and show the PDF file.  In netscape, this link worked fine, but in
mozilla it did nothing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open attached HTML file in mozilla
2.If you had actually logged in to the site, you should be able to click on the
link and view the PDF file.

Actual Results:  The browser gives you a security alert, but then it does
nothing.  I have noticed that a javascript console shows the following error:

Error: docWindow has no properties
Source File: http://dtd.lib.uci.edu/cgi-bin/ArielDoc    Line: 53

Expected Results:  It should have just popped up a new window with the PDF file.

Additional info:

Unfortunately, you won't be able to fully test this as you need a special log in
to the site, but I would imagine that it will still cause the javascript error.
