Window.opener.closed behavior differs among browsers

window.opener.closed works in IE 6 but not in Mozilla or Opera due to a known bug. Also, in IE 5 window.opener.closed DOES NOT work correctly due to another known bug. I also have a longer writeup in my blog.

This site is no longer maintained. I’m sorry, but it’s just too much work for too little return. You can continue to browse old bug reports, though.
