Frame shrinks on some machines

Hi All,
I have an applet and am popping a new frame from inside this applet. The new frame appears to be shrinked in some machines. I have to keep refreshing the browser 2-3 times (to load the applet again and again), then the frame appears correctly.
But it works just fine in some other machines.
1. Has anybody faced similar problem? What's the cause for that?
2. Also the setResizable(false) on that frame works fine on some machines and doesn't (frame will still be resizable) on some machines. What is the cause for all these discrepancies when working with an applet?
Thanks for the help in advance.
Vidya.

I think that's just browser quirks and you're stuck with them. The Mozilla browser I use is fond of opening popup windows in the same size as their requesters, which is a real pain when the actual content is just a small picture or the Real Player.
It's always good to check the browser dependencies when using JavaScript, since different browsers and different versions react in different ways.
There is, BTW a scripting forum here where people who actually know what they're talking about can help with such questions. I'm just babbling nonsense based on what little I know.

Thanks for the hint Tim. I will try to find about the browser dependencies.
BTW, I have one more problem...
As I said earlier, I'm popping a frame from an applet. I'm doing it basically because I have a toolbar in my applet and so I don't want browser's toolbar. So I just put everything in a frame and pop it out of browser...so the browser will not have anything but a blank gray area.
But the problem now is if I close this browser window, my frame also gets closed. So I have to give a warning to the users not to close the main browser window...is there any way to make my frame not to close though the browser window is closed? Or is there any better way to achieve this?
Thanks,
Vidya.
