Bug with resizeTo function on page load

Reported by, Mar 30 2012 Back to list

Issue description

Chrome Version       : 18.0.1025.142
URLs (if applicable) :
Other browsers tested:
Add OK or FAIL after other browsers where you have tested this issue:
Safari 5:
Firefox 4.x:
IE 7/8/9:

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Call window.resizeTo during onload -OR- call newWin.resizeTo in the same thread that opened the new window.

What is the expected result?
The new window would be resized if possible or at least remain the same size.

What happens instead?
The window gets shrunk down to 0x0.  It isn't closed because you can still view it by maximize it from the taskbar.  But if you restore it, then it goes back to 0x0.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if

The only workaround I found is to put the call to resizeTo in a setTimeout.  The length of time on the setTimeout does not seem to matter.
