Both (Location.href and Window.location .href) will yield a script error,
if you are talking about location.href and window.location .href (notice
the different case of the first letter) then there is no difference in
global scope as you can reference global properties (e.g. those of the
window object) as both
window.property Name

Ignoring the capitalisation errors, there is no difference.

If you specify window.location .href without the 'window.' it is
implicitly referenced.

Javascript is case-sensitive.
window.location .href

There's a window object.
The window object has a location object as one of its properties.
The location object has href as a property.

As to the difference between the two, the difference comes up when it's not
window.location .href
but more like
top.location.hr ef

You see a lot of references say window.location .href when what they really
mean is ANY window object.

So the following would all do different things in a nested frameset depending
on exactly where they executed:
self.location.h ref="default.ht ml";
top.location.hr ef="default.htm l";
parent.location .href="default. html";
top.frames[2].location.href= "default.ht ml";
top.opener.loca tion.href="defa ult.html"; // only for popup

I believe most browsers infer the window object as self if it isn't
specified, but I don't know that that is guaranteed. I myself always specify
the full window.location .href, JIC.

Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball!

I already understand that one cannot disable a browser's forward and back functions. This is a situation where I have code working in Mozilla V1.6 and would like something similar for Opera and IE. I link within a page and display individual divisions of that page, manipulating their visibility and display styles with an onClick function. As long as I explicitly click a link to progress, it works with browsers I've tried.

Hello I have a script which records a click and then sends the user to the location. The idea is to keep nice links in the HTML but still do some javascript when the link is clicked. I find that when using IE6 the page that is loaded doesn't register the referrer. in PHP - $_SERVER is null. I'm using this simple code: r = link.href;
