As far as I understand, window.open() wants you to have already declared
window/frame for it to be opened.  Say, if you do open for a frame that is
declared, it will load the page with the first call.  When you do open
without declaration it will first open the window (sort of, will declare it)
and then will load the page into already "declared" window/frame. That's just
my observation.  If you want to have the separate window open without any
hassles use any the name of any existing frame currently not on the screen
and it should load your page.  Still, if worked, it would only be a
work-around to yet another Netscape Mozilla's problem.

they do not deliver what the hype was all about.
