Custom search engine using POST doesn't work in container tabs
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:58.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/58.0 Build ID: 20180208175058 Steps to reproduce: Created fresh profile. Changed config to enable containers: privacy.userContext.enabled true privacy.userContext.longPressBehavior 2 privacy.userContext.ui.enabled true Installed Custom Startpage.com Search-Engine that uses POST: - Navigate to https://www.startpage.com/do/preferences - Click GENERATE URL top right (default setting is POST) - Scrolls down - Click INSTALL CUSTOM PLUGIN - Tick the "Make this the current search engine" checkbox and click Add - Open new tab, enter "example" into address bar, startpage results open - Longpress new tab button, select container to open new tab, enter "example" into address bar, startpage homepage opens (no results) Actual results: Searching using the address bar didn't produce results in a container tab Expected results: Searching using the address bar should produce results in a container tab Also tested with Nightly 60.0a1 and with Firefox58.0.2 under Windows10
Workarounds to get it working are: - Set browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.enabled to false - Navigate to a website in the container tab first, then do the search
User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 Build ID 20180301024724 I was able to reproduce this issue on the latest Firefox Release and the latest Nightly using Windows 10x64, Mac 10.13 and Arch Linux x64. > Workarounds to get it working are: > - Set browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.enabled to false This work around does not work on Nightly because this pref no longer exists.
This is the same underlying problem as bug 1435615 and in my testing is fixed by the patch there. It will land on mozilla-central soon and should be in 61. I'm not sure whether it's better to mark this as a duplicate or as depending on the other bug. I guess the latter since the STR are different.
Depends on: 1435615
Meh, duplicate is probably better.
