Different ways windows open
borderline Mar-18-02 04:30 PM
I know this is complicated.....

I earn money on a site at http://www.blink.com

At this site we click on a javascript link which transfers us to a http link, which then loads and gives us our points.

Using Windows ME, sometimes:

1) the windows open - the close when the next window is clicked opened.
........ and other times:

2) the window opens and stays open - allowing multiple windows to be open at the same time.

I thought that when this happened, if I set a restore place called Blink, I could simply restore that registry. It worked sometimes, so maybe it was coincidence. Other time I just rebooted, but this time I rebooted 6 times and still didn't get it back.

This is more than a matter of convenience, it is a matter of income to a family living on $850 a month.

If you have any idea how I can make the windows ALWAYS open and pile up, or if you can refer me to someone who can tell me, I will be truly grateful, even owe you a favor.

In IE 6.0… Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck Reuse Windows for launching Internet shortcuts. Other browsers probably have a similar setting. Larry

Nope, that's not the solution. It was doing it on ME, now it's doing it on XP.

Whatever causes this causes:

1. Blink link windows to pile up

2. Freeride score to open in a seperate page instead of on the page in the proper icon

3. ClickThru.com pages to pile up (and duplicate).

Apparently, this process causes a failure of the plan for newly clicked open links to close the previously clicked open link.

It is not an IE setting, restoring the registry doesn't help, and sometimes rebooting does help (but not this time despite 10 or 12 reboots).

You are right, that doesn't work on my computer either. As far as I know, to launch a page in a separate window is controlled by the web page, specifically by coding the link so the target windows is equal to “_blank”, such as in this example:
