[LON-CAPA-users] remote control

I have a couple of questions about the window document using Mozilla 1.4:
Some of these occurences might be related --maybe.
I tried opening a new window with the command <a
there a better way? The origiinal document turned to [object]. I also
tried using the <window>link here</window> but it would not let me
resize and scroll.
I have noticed that opening new windows sometimes causes the remote to
disappear. I can usually get the remote back by closing the browser and
relaunching the application. I have also seen new documents launch into
the remote. This is interesting. And I have seen the remote or part of
the remote functions collapse on the brower page, but what to do when it
just goes away.
Mozilla 1.4. I have to close the browser manually. Although the
self.close does work in IE.
