Description

I have a web app that opens a sub-window in javascript, eg...
windowRef1 = window.open("something.com", "window1");
If you open Firebugs console for the sub-window and type:
window.name
.. it will return "window1".
However if I have TOR button 1.4.4 installed, this stops working after a while. I.e. the sub-window looses its name property (goes to empty string).
I have been unable to tie down exactly when this is happening (not sure when TOR button is clearing it) but seems to be some time after a new page is loaded into the sub-window.
The bug appears even if the TOR is dissabled and vidialia is not running.
The bug is not present in TOR Button 1.4.0. It is present in 1.4.4.
I have tested it with FF3.6 and FF6
I'm running windows7 64 bit.

Window.name is cleared whenever the browser decides not to transmit a referer url (#3414)

It is also cleared on each tab if you toggle Torbutton (#1968).

Which of these cases are you running into? Or are you experiencing something else?
