Open Bug 1251568 Opened 4 years ago Updated 3 years ago
Escape key cancels page loading if I try to cancel typed string (does 2 actions at the same time)
>>> My Info: Win7_64, Nightly 47, 32bit, ID 20160224030246 STR: 0. Open http://example.org in a new tab. Close that tab (to create item in history) 1. Open http://www.uvm.edu/~aguertin/test/slowimage/slowpage.html (from bug 1190093) or this heavy site: http://www.rp-online.de/ 2. While the page is still loading, press Ctrl+L, type "a", press Down key to select a suggestion 3. Press Escape 4. Press Escape AR: After Step 3 suggestions list hides, and urlbar value is equal to the item from Step 2 After Step 4 urlbar value is equal to URL from Step 1, but page loading is canceled ER: Either X or Y X) After Step 4 urlbar value should become equal to URL from Step 1. If I will click Escape key once more - page loading should be canceled. Y) Any other clever option defined by developers, but not allowing 2 actions at once (AR, Step 4) Use case: I often encounter pages that require long time to load. During that, I want to check something in History/Bookmarks and cancel typed input to current URL in that tab. This is necessary, because if I go back to a tab with urlbar value != current location, then I can't click identity block, bookmarks button and Reading List button, because they all are disabled due to (poor?) design. STR in comment 0 always work for loaded tabs, but fails for tabs that haven't finished loading.
