Question on window.opener

I have a parent window that opens a pop-up window by clicking on a button on the parent window.

When I click the SAVE button in the pop-up window I am redirecting to another page that contains javascript code that updates the parent window then closes the child window.

However, after a microsoft patch we installed last week the javascript code is no longer working. Meaning the parent window reloads but it does NOT contain the reloaded info but is maintaining the same info before the page was reloaded.

Does the reload() event not reload the window without caching contents?

Here is the javascript code we are using and now no longer works:

if (window.opener) {
window.opener.location.reload();
}
window.close();

Is there a reason that this code would no longer work? Has anyone else experienced such an issue with caching after installing a microsoft patch?

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

change

window.opener.location.reload();

to

window.opener.location.reload(true);
OR
window.opener.location.href = window.opener.location.href;
