    window.open() stalls original

    Hi there.

    I'm having a problem with the window.open() method and I was hoping for a helping hand.

    I have a screen with various links which open new windows using window.open()

    Everything works fine, however some of the new windows involve reports that take a long time to compile and when I open one of these (in IE7) the orignal window is non-responsive until the new one returns.

    Is there any way to break this 'queuing' and free up the original window?

    Are you opening the new "window" in another instance of IE or just in another tab of the same instance?

    The default is a new window, however when forcing to a tab (by holding down the Ctrl key & clicking) results in the same scenario.

    I've also just tested it in FF as well and get the same results

    EDIT: It doesn't, however lock out any other tabs/windows - for example I made this post in FF whilst my 2 tabs (the original window & the new one) are still loading
