Steps to reproduce:

Clicking internal navigation within the website www.dreamwidth.org that change the subdomain.

First case:  click link that goes from the subdomain good-girl-elly.dreamwidth.org to www.dreamwidth.org.  This case works correctly, link is recognized as being the same website and not open in a new tab

Second case:  click link that goes from the main domain www.dreamwidth.org to the subdomain good-girl-elly.dreamwidth.org.  This case dose not work correctly.

"Links to other websites open in a new tab so that your Pinned Tab doesn't change."

Firefox version 63.0.3


Actual results:

Link is opened in a new tab, as the subdomain is incorrectly interpreted as being a different website.


Expected results:

Link should open in the same tab as the domain and subdomain are both the same website.
Component: Untriaged → Tabbed Browser
A subdomain can be an entirely different site. It depends on the site. :/
Blocks: pinnedtabs
Priority: -- → P5

Is there any way this will be adressed in the future?

To everybody finding this issue, it might be possible to suppress the behavior by using <base target="_self">

Severity: normal → S3
