window.open not working onload

I am trying to pop up a window on my web site when my page loads and I cannot get the window.open command to work when I use it with the "onload" directive. Here is a the code:

  16. id = day.getTime();
  17. eval("page" + id + " = window.open(URL, '" + id + "', 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=0,width=500,height=200,left = 262,top = 284');");
  18. }
  19. // End -->
  20. </script>
  21. </head>
  23. <body onLoad="javascript:popUp('musicpage.php')">
  25. This is a test...
  27. </body>
  28. </html>
Addl info:
I can get this to work if I put it in button using the "onclick" directive. It is only with "onload" that it does not work.

I have turned off the Pop Up blocker in IE.

I am running IE 6.0

Any ideas?

Here is the code you can use.

  1. <html>
  2.     <head>
  3.         <script language="Javascript">
  4.             function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features){
  5.             window.open(theURL,winName,features);
  6.             }
  7.         </script>
  8.     </head>
  9.     <body onLoad="MM_openBrWindow('Images/Image1.gif','title','width=505,height=330')">
  10.                This is also a test.
  11.     </body>
  12. </html> 
It worked on my IE browser. Try your luck.

I am having a similar problem with my pop-under script too. I find a code block inserted, by what i thawt was the hosting server but turns out to be client side. My pop-under script works fine locally but when I u/l to server and view it doent werk and this mystery code appears in source!! Symantec is entering this code after download and before display to the browser. the code is as follows:

function SymError()
return true;

window.onerror = SymError;

var SymRealWinOpen = window.open;

function SymWinOpen(url, name, attributes)
return (new Object());

window.open = SymWinOpen;


Now, from reading forums about this issue, I understand that if you disable norton internet securities that this code injection will stop and my popunder works, . However turning off firewalls and pop up blockers will temp fix this prob FOR YOU THE WEBMASTER, What I wanna know is how can we defeat this for the sake of the average viewer.
I tried inserting a "noscript" tag in the head and it worked twice but now its like it learned it or something. :-\ Back to drawing board. Does any coders have a cheat to outsmart this so called security feature from the code side of things?? Or are we stuck telling Grandma Mavis and countless other computer illiterate ppl they needs to turn off her norton to view properly.
