FP_openNewWindow works in WinXP/IE7 not Win7/IE8

FP_openNewWindow works in WinXP/IE7 not Win7/IE8

FP_openNewWindow works in WinXP/IE7 not Win7/IE8

I'm developing an HTML Help file (CHM).
I have a link on one page that should cause a window to pop-up to display another page.
The onClick event code in the first page makes the following call:

FP_openNewWindow('700', '325', false, false, false, false, false, false, 'ContextTopic', /*href*/'Fig1.htm')

This works properly in WinXP/IE7. The pop-up window is of the correct size, there are no bars (menu, toolbar, status, etc). And, it displays the correct htm file.

However, in Win7/IE8, the window that pops-up is a normal IE window, almost filling the screen, with all of the bars: menu, location, toolbar, status, etc. It too displays the proper htm file.

I don't know if the problem is Win7 or IE8. I don't have a machine on which they are separated.

Any thoughts on how to get this to work in Win7/IE8?
