Other Opera incorrect behaviour

If you open a window with resizable=no, Opera doesn't comply.

Quite right! There is absolutely no reason for making a window
non-resizable. if you open the window the correct size the user will
never attempt to re-size it so it doesn't matter whether it can be
re-sized, and if you open it the wrong size (from the user's point of
view) then the user needs to be able to re-size it.

One of the reasons I like Opera :) But not to bash other browsers,
Mozilla based browsers since version 1.4 also allow resizing of opened
windows even in the presence of "resizable=no" (see
<URL:http://www.mozilla.org/docs/dom/domref/dom_window_ref76.htm>
under "resizable").

Luckily there is no de jura standard covering window.open :)

....and if you specify "resizable=no" then you don't deserve to be writing
webpages.

I've made some tests, and actually mozilla 1.5 honors resizable, whareas
1.7 doesn't. Netscape on the other hand is always compliant.

Anyway I see your point. And I understand that you can have a very
limited range of common features among different browser when it comes
to window.open.

Bye.

I don't have Mozilla installed, but Firefox 1.04 does what the reference
said: it makes the window borders undraggable and disables "size" on
the window menu, but you can still drag the "grab" at the lower right
of the status bar.

And never will.

1) It is user-hostile. Users expect to be able to resize windows, and can
not tell why some windows suddenly disobey.

2) It is a security problem. If an evil site opened
https://login.myfavouritebank.com.evilsite.com/
in a suitably narrow, unresizable popup the browser would only show the
first part of the address in the address field, and many users would not
understand how to check the full server name.

resizable=no should never have been implemented anywhere.

(Sorry to wake up an older thread)
