From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020214 BuildID: 2002021403 When logged in to Hotmail, none of the links on the pages can be opened in a new tab or a new window, neither per middle mouse button nor per context menu. Opening the link in the same tab/window works. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Login to Hotmail 2. Try to open any of the links in a new tab/window Actual Results: Nothing happens. Expected Results: The link should open in a new tab/window.
WFM, 2002021403 Win 98.
WFM with 0.9.7. Stopped working here with 0.9.8. Also didn't work with 2002020803.
I'm seeing this problem with 2002021503 on WinXP. When right clicking the link: Deprecated method document.getSelection() called. Please use window.getSelection() instead. When selecting Open in new (Window|Tab): Error: focusedWindow._content.location has no properties Source File: chrome://communicator/content/contentAreaUtils.js Line: 59
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Weird: this effect only appears directly after login. After opening an arbitrary link on the first page inside Hotmail in the same tab/window (e.g. "Inbox"), the error mentioned in Comment #3 disappears and everything starts to work as expected. BTW: The message about the deprecated method is always there when right-clicking on a link (Win NT, 2002021503).
This also happens with 1.1a (2002061104) on win2k... Happens on www.igroups.dk too...
This also happens with 1.1b (2002080604) on WinXP... Happens on www.sotovik.ru too...
Hmmm... this issue seems to have fixed itself somehow, or Hotmail changed its code. WFM now with 2002102415/Win. Don't know how long it has vanished. Could be marked FIXED if nobody else has objections.
Interestingly, the new Hotmail interface evidences this problem for me, when it didn't previously. Middle-clicking on links to open them in a new window does not work, but choosing "open in new tab" from the context menu does. Mysterious...
indeed a problem after MS revamped the hotmail site...
This bug also shows up in Firefox.
With Windows Live Hotmail, I don't think the test case is available anymore. The bug may still exist in Firefox, but we are going to have to see it in the context of a different site. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b4pre) Gecko/2008020504 Minefield/3.0b4pre ID:2008020504
