User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140715214327 Steps to reproduce: * Enable e10s * Enter any search keyword or address into the adress bar and hit enter Actual results: The address bar is immediately emptied (leaving the placeholder text), until the page has been loaded or an error page is shown Expected results: The text in the adress bar should be unchanged until the page has been loaded. Especiall when the loading takes a while, you lose track of what's loading in which tab. Even worse, you can't even stop and reload the page (hitting reload after stop simply does nothing, beause the address bar is empty).
[bugday-20140818] firefox-34.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64 (17-Aug-2014) shows the keyword or address most of the time but in a few cases the address bar was rendered blank for a brief moment. OS: Ubuntu 14.04 Hardware: x86_64
2014-08-18-03-02-05-mozilla-central-firefox-34.0a1.ru.linux-x86_64 Disappears for a moment while a page is loading in a new tab (about:newtab), but not in a non-new tab like home page.
[bugday-20140818] On Windows 7, the same thing as is described in Comment 2 happens. It happens when the window is e10s but the tab is non e10s. E.g. about:newtab, about:config...
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Component: Untriaged → Document Navigation
Ever confirmed: true
OS: Linux → All
Product: Firefox → Core
Summary: [e10s] Adress bar gets emptied during page load → [e10s] Address bar is empty during page load if the tab was about:newtab, about:config (non-e10s?)
Maybe it's similar to bug 983189?
-> tracy for testing
This is WFM as follows: 1) In e10s browser, open a new tab (about:newtab). notice there is only background text "Search or enter address" 1a) or in e10s browser, open about:config. Notice "about:config" is sill in the address bar. 2) perform a search from the search bar. Results: The URL bar doesn't change, or go blank, until the search url is filled in. This is as expected. Tested on Win 7, Nightly 47.0a1, 20160203030249 Mac 10.9.5, Nightly 47.0a1, 20160204030229 Ubuntu 14.04, Nightly 47.0a1, 20160204030229
