Topic: IE 5.5 - calling _blank page with #page command

I am having an odd problem that seems to be confined to IE 5.5. I am trying to launch a new window which contains a pdf file. I need to use the #page=nn command to go to a specific page. It simply doesn't work... I just get a blank page.


1. It works fine as long as I'm not calling a _blank window with #page. For instance, I can launch a new browser window with the pdf, or I can use the #page=nn extension in the current window, it's just the combination of the two that seems to bring up blank windows.

2. It sometimes works if you reboot and make sure the first thing you do is click on the link that launches the new window.

3. It seems to work fine on IE 5.0

4. I copied all of the security settings from the working 5.0 client to a 5.5 and it did not fix the problem.

I am lost... anyone have any ideas?

thanks in advance.
