    new window popped from a bookmark (problem)

    I'm trying to use a javascript bookmarked in Firefox to pop Google Docs open into a new window. This works good and well, but there is a problem when I try to use the links within Google Docs in that new window. When I click on a document link, it would normally open as a new tab in that window. However, it is now opening new docs back in the parent window (the one from which I clicked the bookmark to open Google Docs)--it won't open them within a new tab in the new window.

    Here's the code I have bookmarked to open Google Docs as a new window:
    javascript: void window.open('http://docs.google.com','gooDocWin','width=1000,height=700')

    Why a new window? Because I Google Docs documents have a bulky menu bar section, and I'd like to have windows open by default without the Firefox menus, location, nav, and bookmarks bar in addition to the document's menus.

    JavaScript Bookmarklets execute as if they were part of the main window. Thus, it is no wonder, to me, that you are seeing such behavior. And, no, sorry, I don't have a solution for you.
