Popups in firefox can't seem to popuplate a target in a frame

P: n/a
Hi all,

We're working on a site that uses frames (I know, many people hate
frames, but that's where we are), and we've got a problem. Our site
builds like this:

</head>
<frameset rows="80,*" border="0" frameborder="0">
<frame name="manager" scrolling="no" frameborder="0"
marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" noresize src="http://blahblah.com">
<frame name="mainframe" src="http://devblah.com/">
</frameset>
</html>

The frame "manager" does authentication and other management duties.
The "mainframe" frame is where the actual content of the site goes.
Here is the problem; we have popups on the site that show additional
features. Some of those features help the user select content for the
"mainframe" window. The popup has code that uses target="mainframe" to
direct that content to the correct window. This works fine in IE and
Netscape. However, in Firefox the content doesn't appear in the
"mainframe" at all. Instead a new full screen browser window is created
and the content appears there, no frame at all.

Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, is there anything I can do
to work around this problem?

Thanks in advance,
Doug

Did you try using
opener.top.frames["mainframe"] instead?
