Hi all,

I open a login page of my application, if one is a new user then he/she clicks on 'register' link to be registered. After providing sufficient informations on the registration page and after passing validation rules new account is created.

Problem: The problem is when a user is registered then i use javascript to go back to the previous login page with new user Id/password and after applying certain security rules the user is entered into the application but with the main screen/window appearing TWICE (the problem). Also Id/password is appeaeing in the address bar appended to login page.

Can any body answer where may be the fault. The JavaScript part of the .jsp is,

<script language="JavaScript">
if (document.getElementById("_status").value == "Updated"){
window.location = "login.jsp?userid=" + userid + "&password=" + password;

This is all client-side stuff, so moved to the HTML/Javascript forum.
