Description

There seems to be some problems with IE8 that didn't exist in IE7. Since our only Windows computer is now running IE8 we need to fix the problems. Since we can't make tests in IE7, this also means that IE7 is no longer officially supported. This ticket will be used to collect information about problems we find during the testing. Smaller issues will be fixed in this ticket. If we find anything that requires a separate ticket this will also be recorded here.

It seems like it is no longer safe to pass objects between windows. If the window that created the object is closed, the object will no longer be usable in other places. This causes a problems for popup-windows that tried to "remember" the active tab. The information must be stored in the main page, and the array object is created by the popup page. But once the popup was closed, the array could no longer be used. The result was an error message: the object invoked has disconnected from its clients. The solution is to let the main page create the array.
