Question

FF18 blanks form fields once a popup window closes

We've a website using a lot of tables, forms, Javascript, popup windows (window.open()). One thing we do is to fill a form by way of data fetched in one of these popup windows.

Once updated to FF18 I notice odd behavior. Once the popup window disappears (window.close()) all of the forms on the web page blank out. Even things like drop-down controls are replaced with a plain white box.

I can get them back by changing focus to another program on my PC, or by switching to another tab and back again. I can even have the "fun" of making the mouse visit each control in turn, redisplaying the form fields individually.

Jolly fun perhaps, but I'm on tech support for my company and this behavior makes my firm look bad. If I can't get a reasonable answer to this I have to go about saying "FF18 isn't recommended, try browser X".

Any clues out there? Thanks,
