Re: Now Playing window in IE7

Vax offered the following link as an explanation to what is being seen.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...51(VS.85).aspx

The key information is as follows.

The behavior described in this comment is by-design. In Internet Explorer 7 and later, you cannot remove the address bar in Internet Zone windows, for security (anti-spoofing) reasons. As described in the MSDN article above, in IE7 and later, location=no simply hides the back/forward/stop navigation buttons, and makes the address bar read-only. (The reason you can hide the address bar when the file is saved locally is that the file is opened in the Local Machine zone rather than the Internet Zone.)
-EricLaw, Program Manager, Internet Explorer Security.

The address bar is not supposed to come in a pop up, if we are setting "location=no" in the input "Features" of window.open(). It is coming at certain situations as follows. Please let me know why it is coming like that.
Steps to reproduce this issue

I appreciate why this design decision was made: security trumps appearance.

OK. The problem is that the calculated window size should encompass the page's content and not be consumed by the location (URL) window; empirical observations have proven otherwise. However, there is a boolean window object property (window.locationbar.visible) which denotes whether or not the location window is present. I have modified the code to select window size accordingly. It appears to work with FireFox, so I would hope it will work with IE7 and the other browser you'd called out. I have tested with Safari, FireFox, Netscape, SeaMonkey, and Opera, and all now function as expected.

Re: Now Playing window in IE7

I've been beta testing IE8 and it does not seem to have an issue with the site AS LONG AS the compatibility view is turned OFF.

give it a try if you can.

Also, the new FireFox 3.1 beta works just fine as well, so far.

Nice... VERY nice. FF3.1 finally has support for CSS text-shadow. If you download this beta, or wait until it is a full-functional release, you will see the text on the page with pseudo-3D shadowing. Safari has supported this CSS feature since V2. It's nice to see that it is finally making it way into other browsers.

Re: Now Playing window in IE7

IE8 cleared up any issues I had and is working fine for me.

Thanks for pointing out that feature. If you're running a windows XP machine and can download Safari, you will see that 3D text shadow thingie in the Who's Online and other parts of the left pane. Of all the GA browsers, only Safari gives that eyecandy. This includes Google Chrome.

On my XP machine, Chrome and FF current GA versions don't open with the correct vertical spacing, but you can resize to make it fit. Just wanted you to know.
