FF1+ IE5+ Animated Window Opener II

Hi!
I love the scripts here and usually have no trouble using them. But there is a problem I have run into with this. I used the script (this one comes nearer what I need than the other one) and it works great in IE 6.0, but NOT in AOL!
When my readers go to my site from AOL, they say the script doesn't work.
Is this a security thing with AOL? And is there a patch or another script that would work as well but let all use it and see it?
The page the script is on is:

Thank you for your help in advance.
I hope I've used the right format for this group as to the address of the script.
Kathy

It doesn't work in Firefox either, this is all I see:

http://img263.echo.cx/img263/8858/cfa1hw.th.jpg (http://img263.echo.cx/my.php?image=cfa1hw.jpg)

(Don't worry about the "Install additional components" dialog, I haven't got round to installing Quicktime yet.)

But when I try to spawn one of the popup windows, it just remains a tiny blob on the side of the screen without expanding.

That's probably because most Firefox users have this as their javascript settings:
http://img267.echo.cx/img267/5614/untitled8mv.gif

Which doesn't allow it to work.
For the sake of that, it's probably the best idea to remove the script and make standard popups, in my opinion.

It gets worse, in either browser even if the script is allowed to function, it starts playing music (GUEST SPOT link) and the first page's music keeps right on playing too. Also, if you are trying to plug the GUEST SPOT, opening it in a window without the url showing is not much of a favor.

Well, I thought the script was a good idea, but I think I'll just remove it for now. I can see other browsers and security settings will make for a problem down the road! Oh well, back to the drawing board until some bugs can be fixed! Thank you very much for your help and advice!!
