I don't think  .open() will clear an already open frame and I believe 
.clear() is broken (folks out there, correct me if I'm wrong).

If I understand correctly, the contents of the frame are generated 
by document.write() or the like? I had the same problem in a invoice 
creation routine.

Try:  parent.frame_name.location='javascript:';
