Fixed : window.location not working in IE6

windows.location works fine in FF. But It fails though in IE6. I tried many variations window.location, window.location.href ,window.location.href.assign ,document.location,document.location.href but nothing worked out.

After few hours of googling I found the solution. we need to add the following line to get it worked in IE 6 .

      if(window.event ) {//IE 6
            window.event.returnValue = false;
            window.location = "http://www.google.com";
            return false;
      }else {//firefox
             window.location = "http://www.google.com";
