Browser lies/doesn't show info about current item in tab history (back button popup menu)


(Core :: XUL, defect)





(Reporter: arni2033, Unassigned)


>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 49, 32bit, ID 20160526082509
1. Open url   data:,a
2. Navigate to in that tab, wait until it loads
3. Select all text in urlbar, type "asdf"
4. Right-click on Back button in urlbar, hover mouse over current item in tab history

AR:  Status panel not displayed. Tooltip says "Stay on this page"
ER:  Either X+Y or X+Z
 X) Status panel should display current url
 Y) Tooltip should display the honest hint "Reload the page"  (browser should't lie to user)
 Z) Clicking the history item should just hide the popup menu and stay on page  (browser should't lie)

1) Explanation of (X): Status panel should display current url, because I can't see it elsewhere,
   and also because clicking it is dangerous, as it'll reload current page
2) Explanation of (Y),(Z): Current history item says "Stay on this page", but if I click it, the page
   reloads. So this combo - tooltip+action - is illogical (broken) UI. Both Y and Z are logical.
