Gr+Enter does not open URL in new tab
Updated to FF63 beta 1. In Estonian and Russian keyboard layout AltGr+Enter does not open a URL in a new tab anymore. This is a one more regression, as bug 1389739 is.
It is a dataloss bug, since AltGr does open in the same tab. My example: 1. edited an Adwords campaign 2. needed to open a new site 3. put it in URL bar 4. pressed AltGr+Enter to open it in a new tab Acrual result: the URL was opened in same tab, where I had unfinished work. Extected result: URL is opened in a new tab, unsaved work remain in a other tab.
In US English layout no problem. It seems only languages that uses AltGr for other symbols are affected.
This is not exactly a regression, the meaning of the AltGr button was recently changed in the platform code, and we must fix the frontend code to cope with it by handling AltGraph as Alt. I fail to see how this differs from bug 1389739, why is it not just a duplicate? The underlying cause is exactly the same.
bug 1389739 is 1 year old (with no hope to fix) and this one is from version 63.
(In reply to Eugene Savitsky from comment #4) > bug 1389739 is 1 year old (with no hope to fix) It doesn't really matter, we have far older bugs, and there's hope to fix, indeed I suggested a fix multiple times there, someone should just try and make a patch with a testcase.
