resizeBy problem in XP sp2

Hi,

I have a button in a page and onMouseDown i call a function to resize
the window,

{
window.resizeBy(0,170);
}

It works on
Internet Explorer win98,
winXP Internet Explorer,
winXP Internet Explorer sp1,

but it does not work in XP sp2. I get an error code0 (permition or
access deny - i get the error in Greek).

The strange is that in XP sp2 it works by clicking the button with the
right click !!!!!!!!

Does anyone know anything about, PLEASE ???

vagos,

I reallise that it works only with onclick event not onMouseDown.
Does anyone knows why status=no or status=0 does not work in
window.open() in windows XP sp2 ?

Because the programmers at Microsoft finally realized that it was users
desires *not* to have the status bar removed so you can't remove it.
Typically it is from the over-use/abuse of the status bar that has led
to that decision.

MS changed the window.open behaviour with SP2 (plus some focus change stuff).
It was done to stop spyware sites creating invisible windows.
