JavaScript open in a new window, not tab

firefoxjavascript

I have a select box that calls window.open(url) when an item is selected. Firefox will open the page in a new tab by default. However, I would like the page to open in a new window, not a new tab.

How can I accomplish this?

Best Solution

Specify window "features" to the open call:

window.open(url, windowName, "height=200,width=200");

When you specify a width/height, it will open it in a new window instead of a tab.

See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Window.open#Position_and_size_features for all the possible features.
