Affected versions

  • Firefox 70.a01

Affected platforms

  • Windows 10 x64
  • Ubuntu 18.04 x64
  • macOS 10.13

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open any site with a new profile or click on the shield icon from URL bar and then on the "i" symbol.
  2. Click anywhere on the text: "Browse without being followed..."

Expected result
I think there are two different results that could happen here:

  • Nothing happens.
  • The cursor changes and the text has a link hover effect and after the click, the "Learn more" page opens in a new tab.

Actual result

  • The "Learn more" page opens in a new tab.

Regression range

  • I don't think this is a regression.

Additional notes

  • This might be an issue because some people have the habit of selecting the text while reading it and it could become frustrating.

Hah, having said habit I completely agree with this.

Interesting! Seems like there have been a couple of changes to the info message that I wasn't aware of, and this was one of them.

One more for your triage - sounds like a polish issue but maybe would be nice to fix for 70. Up to you!

Yeah, sorry, our triage link was broken and missed this. We'll look at it today.

I think a simple fix for this would be to make only the Learn More text clickable, and there's another bug to style it properly on hover.

Polish for Skyline feature, fine for uplift for beta 12.
