User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0
Build ID: 20170323105023

Steps to reproduce:

When clicking the spy(+) glass on a picture added to a tweet in Tweetdeck a subframe /popup used to open 


Actual results:

On my notebook/tablet (W10 Qualcom 4 2G) this doesn't work, instead a new tab with the source-account and the tweet in a popup is opened. On my desktop (W10P i5 8G) it works properly.


Expected results:

When clicking the spy(+) glass on a picture added to a tweet in Tweetdeck a subframe/popup should open

Mike, can you help figure out what's up here? I'm guessing this could be e10s-related but I'm not sure.

https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/ is the URL.

Hi Victor, this doesn't reproduce for me on my ASUS ZenBook/Win 10. Is your notebook touch capable (mine isn't)? Thanks.

Hi, yes it is touch capable. It used to work ok though. Just switched of the touchscreen to test. The problem persists. The main difference is that it is 32 bit. I guess that shouldn't have anything to do with it.I guess maybe there is connection with another bug I reported (closed because it seemed resolved): the enter key is not working in FF on some sites. It does on my PC though.

Hi Victor, would you please also help check if firefox on your devices supports multi-process (e10s) or not. You could refer to the wiki page [1] to check the e10s enabling status, and force enable/disable it. I am wondering if this is a e10s-related problem. Thanks again.

I checked: On the problem-device it is enabled. I tried to disable it but couldn't get it done. Even installed an add-on that said it could but that didn't work either. There are three separate processes. On my PC it is disabled. It says because of an add-on. Can't see which one; there are some differences. Tried to generate status reports. This seems to hang so I closed the tabs after a few minutes.

I have an e10s-enabled and touch-enabled windows 10 box that doesn't seem to reproduce.

Victor, can you provide a specific URL or screen capture video that shows this happening? Thank you!

Hi Andrew, I can't see what a screenshot can help. The url is https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/ of course. I click on the spyglass and a new tab opens, showing the account of the person in the normal twitter layout with the picture opened in a separate subframe in the middle (tweet underneath). Just as it should do in tweetdeck itself. I tried to fiddle some settings in tab-mix-plus without avail. It also happens in clean mode but I will test all things again this weekend.

OK, I don't think I can reproduce that.

Thank you. Without being able to reproduce this, it's going to be difficult to figure out the root cause.

Triage meeting: we were trying to figure out how to reproduce this but in vain. Also, not 100% sure about what "spyglass" meant. Providing a screenshot or video clip is definitely great help to move this bug forward.

I experimented (on the 32bit tablet, 64bit PC works fine): In safe mode it now works as it should: click on a picture added to a tweet in tweetdeck opens a frame in the same tab. In normal mode again this fails. Then I turned off the Tab Mix Plus Add In  and the issue was gone again. Turned it on again and duplicated the settings for Tab Mix from my 64bit PC and made sure all was updated. No luck.

Additional remark: fiddling the lock- protected- or fixed of the tab seems to make no difference.
