Dragging and dropping an object causes Firefox to jump to an invalid URL

Posted

I am developing an application using jQuery and AngularJS. Part of the app involves dragging a element and dropping it onto another.

In the onDrop function I display a popup, which is just a div element. The popup is briefly displayed and then the browser attempts to go to another URL which it then tells me is invalid. At no point in this procedure do I try to load a new page or even make any http calls to the server. The function works in Chrome, IE9+ and Opera.

If you email me, I can give you a logon to the demo system to see the behavior for yourself.

Many thanks! Craig
