A known bug? target="_blank" and window.close() do no longer work together since Firefox 72

Assume you create a new window (pop-up) using javascript and have its content be something like this:

<html>
<body>
  <form action="some_action.php" target="_blank"> 
     ... some form fields ... 

     <button onclick="window.close()">
        submit in new tab & close pop-up
     </button>
  </form> 

  <a href="some_page.php" target="_blank" onclick="window.close()">
     open link in new tab & close pop-up 
  </a>
</body>
</html>


If you click the button "submit in new tab & close pop-up" the following should happen:

  1. Firefox submits the form in a new tab (because target="_blank" is set in the <form>)
  2. The pop-up closes itself (because onclick="window.close()" is set)

And if you click the link "open link in new tab & close pop-up" the following should happen:

  1. Firefox opens the link in a new tab (because target="_blank" is set in the <a>)
  2. The pop-up closes itself (because onclick="window.close()" is set)

However, what happens instead is this:

  1. Firefox only opens an empty tab, i.e. the submission of the form / the opening of the link fails
  2. The pop-up closes itself

This clearly seems to be a bug, right? Is this a known problem? I tested it with older versions and the problem apparently was introduced relatively recently with Firefox 72. More precisely, the form submission bug was introduced with Firefox 72 Beta 1 and the link opening bug was introduced with Firefox 72 Beta 7.

In Chrome and Internet Explorer both cases work as expected.

I just upgraded to Firefox 77, x64, Windows 10 2004.

Firefox 76 already broke LockWise - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287008

Now Firefox 77 breaks 99% of all websites. (See attached screenshot.) www.example.com www.google.com www.wikipedia.org etc

Somehow, support.mozilla.org works, UNTIL I try to log in.

I've tried incognito mode, safe mode, etc. When I change charset of the page, the text displays differently, but it's still a useless mishmash.

--- BUT --- when I open developer tools, click the HTML request and click the Response tab, the HTML renders correctly there.

All received emails from 1 person automatically come in a subfolder in thunderbird thanks to a filter. All those emails are similar, the email itself is always the same, but the attachment (a PDF) that is important. Suppose, I receive at least every day (except the weekends) during 2 months such an email.

Is there a way to download all 50 PDFs from 50 emails simultaneously in a folder (and less important, merge them into 1 large PDF)

thanks,

Bart

Hello,

One website gives me a failed secure connection:

An error occurred while connecting to www.cdkeypt.pt. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

This error is in Firefox but this site doesn't work in any browser

I restart the pc when it re-enters the desktop if i open the browser before the computer fully starts the site works fine which makes me conclued that something is interfering with it and it most be an update or something because i didn't install anything new, but what? it is only this site that doesn't work all the others are working fine.

I tested opening the site in another pc in my network and it works fine.

I hope someone can help me,

Thanks

I did not make any changes to options. When I started today, I went to find a website from history and all my history from the day before was gone. AND have of the list space was full of bookmarks. How could bookmarks be in history? Why is my history gone?

Is there some keyboard command that was done by accident to cause this? This has never happened before.

My dad uses Chrome not Firefox. So anything he does should not affect my settings.

Is there a way to fix this? or to keep it from happening in the future?

Hello, At work we're using Google Meet for video chats with our colleagues. During the meeting, when I navigate to other windows, there's small a FireFox window that allows me to navigate back to the meeting, and is shown on top of all other windows. So far so good. The problem is that meetings end, I close the meeting windows, but this small Windows stay on top, cannot be closed, clicking on it does nothing. I can just move it right and left. How can I get rid of it when there's no meeting? Thanks

I have three bellsouth.net email accounts. The Outgoing Server (SMTP Edit SMTP Server... / Security and Authentication / User Name: dialog contains the same email address in all three accounts. If I change any one dialog to match the account it is associated with, all three accounts automatically change to match it. Only the account with the matching email address is capable of sending email. Why does the user name no longer match the associated account? I perceive this is a relatively new problem. Is there a fix?

The normal route of clicking on write email >format>text colour used to go to a drop down menu where you simply clicked on the colour on a large ball. Now it has a silly drop down which stays on black whatever you do. Why do developers mess up things that have functioned the same way for years successfully?

I am currently using Firefox version 77.0 in windows 10. I noticed few things that when I try to open some of the PDFs it shows "This PDF document might not be displayed correctly" and just blank white page shows up (image included).

I use few extensions which I disabled them completely when I read PDF but still I am unable to access PDF. While same PDFs are easily readable by other browsers like Chrome or Edge.

Please let me know is it a bug or there is some settings to tweak. Thanks in advance.

Please tell me how to revert back to the previous was this worked. This is one new feature that I find annoying as it hides part of the items underneath it.

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.
