URL display in title bar UNWANTED

I don't know if it was some kind of "upgrade" in a recent Windows SP
but, I now have a problem...When ever I have JavaScript open a new
window the URL is displayed in the title bar prior to the title, this
is really just an aesthetic problem but seems to be fixed if I set the
new window property of location to yes, but I then get an ugly url
title bar in my new window. Does anyone know how to disable that
"feature" or even what I am talking about. It just annoys me.

It can't be fixed, it is a security feature for new windows opened
without an address bar. It helps users identify malicious sites that
open new windows without an address bar and mimic other legitimate
sites. A quick look at the titlebar and the user can usually determine
if you really are at the site they want to be at.

Firefox 1.0.2 and Mozilla 1.7.6 exhibit this behaviour as well.

It is a good thing and can not be overridden by client-side authors
(unless you include "location=1" in your window.open() attribute list).
