Steps to reproduce



Repro Steps:

  1. Create page1.htm: <html><body>display "I’m in a popup window now …"</body></html>
  2. Create page2.htm with a button and onclick() event calling function to open dialog, and do form POST targeting new dialog calling page1.htm, like below.

<input type="button" onClick="Popup(this.form);" name="btn2" value="Popup Dialog">
function Popup(f){“","MyNewDialogName","width=200,height=150”);
f.action = "page1.asp"; = "MyNewDialogName";

  1. Open IE11, navigate to page2.htm, click the “Popup Dialog” dialog button. IE 11 will popup the new dialog, but then it will also launch new instance of IE11 and display the page1.htm in it, instead of in the popup dialog.

Expected Results:

Expected: IE11 should correctly post form to and load targeted page in the newly popped up dialog, without opening new IE instance and new tab. Repeatedly posting form to existing popup window should reuse that window, not keep on launching more popup windows and then more IE instances.

Actual Results:
