Self.focus() and ie8


i have problem with this code in ie8

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">

<meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type" />
<title>Untitled 1</title>
<script type="text/javascript">

var opened;
function myPopup()
{"", "mynew", "status = 1");

<body onclick="myPopup()">

this popup working with all browsers except ie8

any help ?

Looks like a security thing:

see the last comment.

In any case, popunders are extremely antisocial so it’s not really a bad thing that this fails.

Good for Microsoft…
