Random problem reading status bar with both IE6 and IE7

P: 1
I have a JS that under certain event (on focus) reads the status bar from IE6 and IE7 and performs certain action.
It works on most of the cases, but in the log of this application, I see like 30% of the cases, the status bar returns blank.

In my tests, both IE6 and IE7 works perfectly fine, in my development computer. But in production, with people coming from all over the world with who knows what funny software installed in their machine, it some times fails.

When it fails, it mostly fails for all the user's section, but I've seen some cases when for the same user, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

I'm thinking that may be a plugin installed in the user's browser might be interfering but I'm not sure.

Please, any idea is very welcome.
