    Unable to maximize popup window

    I have a page with a series of links that launch new popup windows. The pages that pop up are EXTERNAL to my site. The JavaScript used for the popups is as follows:

    function picWindow(URL) {
    var windowName = "myWindow";
    var features = 'directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=yes,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=no,resizeable=yes';
    window.open(URL,windowName,features);
    }

    When the window pops up, I'm unable to maximize it. The strange thing is, this problem is brand new. It's been fine for a few years. I have 2 questions:

    1) Is it possible that the external site owner has some code in their pages that would prevent maximizing the window?
    2) Assuming that's the case, is there anything I can do in my code to make SURE that my users can maximize the window when it pops up?

    Thanks for any help!
