Hello,

I am trying to execute some script inside an script tag of an svg graphic. All is working fine except for the "setTimeout" function. I am pretty sure that this had worked a few year before. Here is my example code:

I would expect to see an alert window every second. This is working in IE11 but not in the latest Firefox. Is this a bug or a feature? :-) I just wanted to ask here first before creating a bug report. Thank you for your answers in advance!

Thank you for trying! I was fiddeling around with this problem for some hours now. After reading your answer and restarting Firefox, the problem is gone. Strange, but it is working now. Thank you!
