Acessing parent window from child on a Mac

I know this probably isn't the right place to ask this question. If someone
knows of a good place to get help for this problem please point me that way.

I have an application that works fine with Windows clients that uses a child
window to enter in search criteria and then returns to the parent window
with the search results. It's a map based application using ESRI's ArcIMS

The program isn't working with a Mac running IE. The function I'm using to
return to the parent window is below:

<script language='javascript'>


function gotoMap()


var objParent = window.opener;

var strParcelID = document.frmParcel.txtParcelNumber.value;

var strLocation = "/Gis/Applications/<%=AppName%>/asp/iMap.asp?Parcel=" +

if (objParent) objParent.location = strLocation;
