P: n/a
Hello Guys,
Can somebody tell me how I can disable a menu item such as "save as" in the
Internet Explorer or Netscape using Javascript. Thanks.

No, you can't remove a menu item from a menu.
But you can eliminate the all menu.
Try

window.open("yourFile.html", "targetNewWindow",
"toolbar=no,location=0,directory=no,status=no,menu bar=0,scrollbars=no,resizable=0,copyhistory=0,widt h=200,height=200");

Try
And then wonder why it doesn't remove the toolbars?
window.open("yourFile.html", "targetNewWindow",
"toolbar=no,location=0,directory=no,status=no,menu bar=0,scrollbars=no,resizable=0,copyhistory=0,widt h=200,height=200");

Then try

"toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=0,menub ar=0,scrollbars=0,resizable=0,copyhistory=0,width= 500,height=200"

It works for me in FF, NS and IE.

Try it in IE7.
Try it in Opera.
Try it in FF with the user.js file edited:

user_pref("dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar ", true);

David,
I'll try to find it, I have seen a webpage that when I tried to save using
"Save as ...", the menu was disabled, I do not remember if they opened a new
window.
Regards
