Posted

Again, after latest update (haha) the same thing is happening AGAIN. I have followed ALL of the troubleshooting suggestions and NONE are helpful. I continue to get the blank page.

It did stop and I couldn't tell you why the second time. But since this is regularly recurring, this must be a bug.

As I stated that I had done all the troubleshooting, that means I already did what was here. However, this solution NO LONGER applies. I do not have any kind of tab extension at all. And I have tried everything else. If they had worked I would not be contacting you again.

The solution in your earlier thread ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1169261 ) obviously doesn't apply, as Tab Mix Plus is no longer supported.

Normally, I see this behavior:

(1) When I click a download link and the site launches a new window/tab, Firefox will automatically close that new blank window/tab when displaying the Open/Save dialog.

(2) When I force a download link to a new tab myself, for example, by middle-clicking or Ctrl+clicking the link, Firefox will NOT close the new blank tab automatically when the download dialog appears.

It has been like that for as long as I can remember.

P.S. I never used any add-ons which would force links into new tabs for me, so I don't know if they behave more like the first case or the second case.

Okay, the reason I see this behavior in my Firefox is that I have an add-on (user script in Violentmonkey) which modifies links to other sites with this:

rel="noopener noreferrer"

Either of those will prevent Firefox from closing the blank tab. I cannot trigger the problem once I turn that off.

What site are you opening the PDFs from? I wonder whether they use anything like that on their links.

I was expecting an answer more like Facebook, Google, etc. The question is whether the links you are clicking contain something like this in their code:

rel="noopener"

My last thinking about this was in the demo document:

https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/downbug.html

With the "No rel" links, Firefox closes the blank tab for me. With the other links, the blank tab stays open.

Is that how yours behaves as well?

No, it does not. And for years, no other page opened AT ALL, just the Nitro pdf.
