I am an application developer for a customer information system and we have dozens of clients using our web based product.

Some users recently updated to firefox version 123 and are reporting issues in two different areas of our product. Both of these areas involve java script. These clients running under prior version of firefox did not have any problem and if they switch to another browser the issue is resolved. But they need to run using firefox. I have the recent version of firefox and an older version and am able to re-produce the behavior. I will also provide a screen shot of the page working and the page not working as well.

The issue is, we have a payment page in our application. The user enters a payment amount and our page then fills in several values for them and as other values are entered eventually an Add Payment button is enabled. What is not happening is when the payment is entered the action is not run and the page treats the field as not existing and eventually displays a required field icon. There is nothing the user can do at that point to get the Add Payment button to get enabled.

Chosen solution

Does it still happen in the latest Nightly? It should be fixed by Bug 1882386 which will hopefully make the next 123.0.1 update.

What does the exclamation mark next to the amount mean? Maybe the validation code doesn't work the same in Firefox 123.0.

The red icon is with the exclamation mark next to the amount is a required field indicator. It renders if the amount field is null.

Does your app use GWT - Google Web Toolkit? Another user reported a problem with number validation on GWT here: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1441208 (unsolved)

Yes this page is a GWT page. I reviewed the other issue and eventually we get a similar message. I will replicate it and attach a screenshot

What Windows locale do you use, what uses it for the fraction delimiter? Is this a number field or a text field if you check this in the Inspector?

The windows locale is English US. The fields are all text.

I can't find a demo page for GWT that has numeric input validation to test on. Are you using custom code, or a specific framework/plugin for that?

Can you share a link to a public test page?

If not, you can help find the change responsible by running mozregression between version 122 and 123.

This did fix my issue for the GWT issue reported here as well as an issue on our JSF project, so a double thank you!

Keep in mind that Nightly is a possibly unstable developer alpha build and updates twice per day.

Thanks, I have tested 123.0.1 on my development system, all is good now and am hoping the fix comes in 124.0. Most of my clients and internal users get only the full releases, so I have just updated my Jira ticket with this information and have given them their options.
