Click on New window button focus remains in address bar....

Post by Chief Plasma » Wed Aug 15, 2007 6:55 pm

When I click the new window button the new window opens in the forground as expected. However the link in the addressbar is wrong (contains-> about:blank instead of correct URL) and has focus.
AV 11.5.17
AV options set for new window:
open home page checked.
open in forground checked.

You can't? Is Tools > Open New Pages in Forground checked? Is the New button set to open the homepage.

Right, I can't.


EDIT: Sorry, now I have read his post again. So what's his problem? The focus or the wrong link issue?

If it's the focus issue, than I can confirm but I think it's WAD.
The wrong link (about:blank) I can't confirm.

Add the new window button to your tool bar if it is not there.
Then make sure it the AV options are set up for your home page as mentioned post 1.
When you click the new window button the correct page opens but it does not open the same way as if you clicked the Home button.
Still an issue per version 11.5 build 20.

Hope that helps.

No, doesn't help.

What do you want with the home button now?

They have different purposes.
The home button changes the current tab to your home page.
The new button opens a new tab and if set, sets it to your home page.

For example, I have google setup as my home page so if i am surfing around and want to look something up i use the new window button to do that since i usually do not want to leave what i am currently looking at.

My point is that both the focus and the url are not correct.
I suspect that they may both be related with the same code bug.
If the url was being set correctly then the focus should return to the window, in this case the google search field.

In any case the functionality should be the same "window wise" as the home button.
:)

I don't think I have the old installs or I would go back and try to figure out when the bug was introduced. I may have to poke around some of my old boxes. ;)

Just checked AV 10.2 build 52 on an older box.

The about:blank issue is there but the focus problem is not.
That is on a win2k box so not sure if it is Os specific issue.

I'll have to upgrade that av to see. ;)
