without address bar

Recently we were struggling with trying to figure out how to suppress the address bar for a popup window opened using JavaScript’s method. Normally, there is an option there which allows you to specify ‘location=no’ and the address bar is expected to be hidden. However, no matter what we tried, this did not work for us.

Later on I chanced upon an Internet Explorer setting which actually controls the final display. There is a security setting ‘Allow websites to open windows without address or status bar’:


This setting needs to be set to ‘Enable’ for the respective zone (such as Trusted sites etc.) for the address bar display to be suppressed.

Hope this hint helps!
