    popped window freezes parents menu

    I've never seen this one before.

    The user clicks an image which pops a window containing a small video. Problem is, it completely freezes the menu on the parent page so the user can't move around the site anymore. The parent's page scrolls...but my php included menu is somehow disabled. The user needs to navagate while the movie is downloading.

    What's the scoop?

    Code:
    here's my parent link
    
    <form  style="margin:0px; padding:0px" name=form1 id=form1 method="post" action="video.php">
    <img class="thumb" src="img/bob_nick.jpg" onclick="doSubmit1();">
    <input type="hidden" name="file_name" value="bob_nick.wmv">
    </form>
    Code:
    and here's my js to pop it
    
    
    function doSubmit1()
    {
    var newWind;
    newWind = window.open("about:blank", "videoWindow", "toolbars=no, location=no, directories=no, status=no, menubar=no, resizable=yes, width=350, height=350");
    form1.target="videoWindow";
    form1.submit();
    }

    anyone have a clue?

    the downloading video window freezes the parent...
    maybe the popped window is retaining focus while downloading which is why the parent's menu links don't work...but it scrolls?
