IE does not let us close the pop up window - loosing window.opener reference.

Q: IE does not let us close the pop up window - loosing window.opener reference.

Hi there,
We are developing an application integration between Oracle EBS 12.2 and Cybersource(Payment Processing Tokenization System). So from our EBS 12.2 front end jsp, we are opening a window for users to add their credit card. Newly opened window is being
redirected to Cyversource which is PCI compliant site. User will enter their credit card and submit the page. On successfull submission, cybersource will send accepted response and say that your card is accepted. Now, we want to close this window and have
the user go back to front end Page.

Above functionality is working fine in Firefox and Chrome but it does not work in IE. Here is the javascript code which we are running in pop up page:
function refresh_parentpage()
{
var rf='Y';
if(navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft Internet Explorer-IGNORE") != -1)
{
rf='N';
}
if(rf=='Y')
{
<% out.print("window.opener.location.href = '" + (urlofourfrontpagewithallparameters)+"'"); %>;
window.close();
if (window.opener.progressWindow)
{
window.opener.progressWindow.close()
}
}else
{
alert("You might need to refresh the payment option page to load the new card upon this window close.");
window.close();
}
}

Can you identify what could be the issue and how can we solve it? We have compatibility view set to checked, we allow all pop ups, java script is enabled in IE.
Thank you for your help in advance.

Preferred Solution: IE does not let us close the pop up window - loosing window.opener reference.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure which Windows update caused this, but ever since that download, whenever I close a window, the little blue disc keeps turning until the window DOES finally close. (Hope you understand what I'm saying.) This happens after closing EACH window, ALL the time.

Essentially, it takes a few extra secs for the closed window to really close. It's irritating/frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. I've put as much of my comp's info in my profile as I know or could find. Have been working with comps for six or so years. Not a total dummy, help alot of friends , and always reaching to learn more.

Have never seen this problem anywhere or it would be fixed by now, lol Can't STAND the waiting it causes til I can move onto something else.

Any suggestions?? PLEASE???

CompInfo: Vista Ultimate, IE8--See Profile for more.

I thank you for your time.

A:Closing a window causes little blue disc to turn til window finally DOES close

Lets try two steps to see if we can fix the problem
Assuming that you are using IE go to>tools>internet options>advanced>resest and see if that helps.
Second try with clean boot to see if some software is behind the problem

After about 10 minutes of being booted up, my computer acts very strange:

If I have a window open - any window (i.e., any application), and I click on the X (upper-right-hand corner) to exit the application, the application ends, but the display does not go away. In other words, the application has in fact ended, but the window stays on the screen.

Similarly, if I merely minimize the application, the display stays on the screen, even though in fact the application has been minimized.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP3

I've run everything, including combofix

Hello hepplewhite212,

Could you please give me just a tad more info please? When did this start? And, do you happen to use Firefox? I see you ran ComboFix, but it looks like this started before you did so I'd like to rule that out for sure as well.

Hi
I want to reinstall Windows XP without loosing data and downlaods which I have no way of backing up.

However I do have a partition in my hard drive.

Can I stuff all the prgms etc. I want to keep into the D Drive and reinstall windows on the C drive? Or will Windows delete the entire hard disk?

Someone told me if I reinstall windows it only clears the drive you are installing it to.

PLease confirm this anyone?
 

A:RE-install window without loosing data?

There are multiple ways to attack this. First, a Windows install will not mess with your "D" drive unless you tell it to. The W2K (and I believe the XP) installer has an imbedded disk manager, and early in the process you can tell it what to do (where to install, how to partition, what to format, etc.). Second, I believe you can completely install Windows without formatting your "C" drive either - just a replacement of the Operating System components without affecting your other data. Having said that, a totally "clean" install usually does involve formatting the partition in which you will be installing the OS. Finally, understand that when you install programs under Windows many registry keys are built and initialized. Generally, you cannot just move/save programs (including all their directories and modules) then move them into another OS (same OS but new) and expect them to run. If you do an install and use/keep the old registry you may be keeping problems which you are trying to get rid of. The short answer to your question is "yes and no". Proceed with caution.

Hi. Things are really jammed on my Lenovo Laptop (with Windows Vista). Yesterday I downloaded a font from a "free"-font website. I followed their instructions but I must have done something wrong. Because the result is that my Windows/Font window is stuck on the screen. I can't close it, or minimize it or do anything with it. The other windows that I had previously minimized down to the bottom bar are stuck, too. I can't shut the computer down properly, or reboot properly. Here's what I was doing when this happened. I had downloaded the new font folder to C:\Windows\Temp. To get this folder to Windows\Font I dragged it from Windows\Temp to Windows\Font. When I let up off the mouse button, a one inch vertical line appeared there and everything froze. I can access all the programs that are on the desktop, and I was able to get online to contact you. But other than that it's froze-up. My husband said hit the Escape button, but I don't want to try anything until I hear from you. Besides, I don't really know what the Escape button does. THANX!

New here, looking forward to reading through some of the threads here and learning more about Windows 7.

I've been running RC1 since it became available, and recently I've added 2 other user accounts on my main PC. These 2 accounts seem to have the same problem: neither of them allow you to "x-out" of a window by clicking the red X up in the right hand corner to close the window.

It's quite an annoying problem, and I can't seem to word the problem just right to get an answer from Google. Hoping somebody here can point me in the right direction.

When I disconnect an RDC session, the window just goes black and stays open. It disconnects OK, but the window remains. To close it, I have to use Task Manager. At one point I had 5 black RDC windows open. Anyone else having this issue? I have been Googling around and am not seeing anyone else with this.

A:RDC window fails to close

Nope. Even if I use Task Manager in the RDC session, on the computer I am Remoting into, and select Shut Down when the remote system shuts down the RDC window closes.

So it is a problem on your specific system that is causing this problem. It is Not a Feature.

I receently downloaded and installed IE 7 and most times when I close the browser window the link goes to about:blank then i get IE box - internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience, it generates an error report and prompts are to send error report or don't send. This only happens when closing the browser and occasionally will happen when closing a single tab which then causes the whole window to close.

Hi!
I was working on my poor Sister-in-law's computer again yesterday and had a strange thing happen. Five or six time in the 4 hours I was using the computer the tower would just power off when I would close a window (no reboot, no hibernate/standby, no blue screen, no error message, no freeze, the thing just instantaneously turned off). It never happened when I was reading, navigating, or using explore, only when I would close a window. It didn't happen every time. The keyboard and screen remained on though the screen went blank of course.

The last time it happened the power would not come back on. It did work after I left. She and I had both noticed that it sounded a little noisy. I am wondering if the fan may be going out of it causing it to overheat. Would that cause something like this to happen?

I was working on it because it is really slow shutting down now (she installed service pack 2). and I was trying to find a way to fix that or work around it. It seems unrelated to me, but I thought I would mention it. She is running XP, and has updated versions of AdAware, AVG and Spybot S&D running. She also has HJT if you think a log would be helpful.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated!
Thanks,

It is of no success contacting Paltalk for this problem so maybe I can find some help here. paltalk free subscribers get a ad which blocks you from closing out the chatroom window. If you was to try to close the chatroom by right clicking the taskbar thingy that show the program you will see that Close Alt+F4 is greyed out till the ad is done. If yuou try closiong it using task manager it will close the whole program. i dont want that.
 
I want to circumvent that. I beleive Paltalk shouldn't be allowed that much control. Forcing people to watch an ad upon closing the chatroom window is in my mind is criminal and an act against a component of free will.
 
What I need help doing is finding a setting in Windows Vista Home Basic (x86) that can prevent Paltalk from having that kind of control and no i canot go to windows 7 nor 8 because of older hardware. Also I do not wish to upgrade because of this forceful act upon people. I just want to prevent paltalk doing this in windows. I want to be able to close a window without this happening.

"Paltalk is ad supported when using the free version of the software and does NOT report your browsing habits like an 'adware' or 'spyware' program would do.  Paltalk simply displays ad banners within its own windows.  Paid subscribers do not see any ad banners.  We hope this helps you to understand the distinction between 'adware' and 'ad supported' software."

Hi!
I was working on my Sister-in-law's computer yesterday and had a strange thing happen. Five or six time in the 4 hours I was using the computer the tower would just power off when I would close a window (no reboot, no hibernate/standby, no blue screen, no error message, no freeze, the thing just instantaneously turned off). It never happened when I was reading, navigating, or using explore, only when I would close a window. It didn't happen every time. The keyboard and screen remained on though the screen went blank of course.

The last time it happened the power would not come back on. It did work after I left. She and I had both noticed that it sounded a little noisy. I am wondering if the fan may be going out of it causing it to overheat. Would that cause something like this to happen?

I was working on it because it is really slow shutting down now (she installed service pack 2). and I was trying to find a way to fix that or work around it. It seems unrelated to me, but I thought I would mention it. She is running XP, and has updated versions of AdAware, AVG and Spybot S&D running. She also has HJT if you think a log would be helpful.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Libs
