interesting. I've just checked with my browsers.... Firefox
does block the popup - as you say - but without a warning.
However, when allowed, the title says 'logout'
yes, this is the problem with popups
The PopUp logout window simply calls monowall:8001/ with a logout directive
ID in the submit field, you could have the somehow linked from somewhere else...
or you might be a little more evil^H^H^H^H^H^Hcrafty and make the login page
be trapped in a frame - thus their main browser session runs in a frame underneath
a banner with the logout button..perhaps even your logo etc
