Yep it was me, i guess im getting old and my eyes are playing tricks on me, when i posted this function awhile back i distinctly remember checking every bit of it to make sure it was perfect so that i would never have to come back to it.
And sure enough when i saw your example and it looked alot like mine in principle i decided to go take a look, and sure enough i missed a freaken comma in the attributes right after resizable, grrrrrrrr lol
Here is what have now after the correction.
Here is the interesting thing, the window now loads at the size specified so that issue has been fixed with the comma fix. But FF does not recognize the resizable because i can still drag the window any size i want in FF but in IE cannot drag the window larger. So that part still seems to be the case.
shoutwindow = window.open("<?=$CONST_ROOT?>/shout/chat.php", "shoutwindow", "location=0,status=0,scrollbars=0,menubar=0,resizable=0,width=300,height=310");
But the load size was the issue i was most concerned about i just find the other part interesting.
Thanks so much, my foot tastes horrible by the way lol....
