Opening New Window Problem




When I open IE 6 to a web page and then right-click a hyperlink and select
"open in new window," a new window opens up with the correct link, but the
old window automatically closes.

The same thing happens if I try to launch Internet Explorer twice; the first
window closes. What can be done to fix this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.


Nevermind, I found my answer in a post nearly a year old!

I had to turn the pop-up blocker off on the Yahoo Companion toolbar in my
IE6. I'll uninstall it altogether.

From IE> Tools> Internet Options> Advanced> Browsing> uncheck "Reuse windows
for launching shortcuts."

And... you may have a toolbar or program running which is blocking pop-up
windows- something like Yahoo Companion, Google toolbar, MSN toolbar,
Ad-aware Plus, Earthlink toolbar, etc.
Yahoo Companion is a very common cause.

You'll have to turn off the feature that's blocking new windows or, perhaps,
uninstall the program.

With some programs of this type, using Ctrl+click or Shift+click will allow
a new window.

If you're sure that another program isn't causing this, these links should
help. Tips #21 & 46
