In IE it opens a new window. I have turned "Block Popup Windows" off but have not restarted FF (can't without losing this bug). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create page with form & target page 2. open page with form 3. click on submit button Actual Results: target page opens in tab which contained page with form Expected Results: opened a new browser window (or tab in current window)
Works for me: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b) Gecko/20050205 Firefox/1.0+ Try again in safe mode (no themes/extensions loaded). Or attach a testcase showing the problem.
wfm, do you have singlewindowmode enabled?
no, I'm using the extension tabbrowser preferences (that's what you mean, right?). When I get a minute I'll uninstall it and try again.
(In reply to comment #3) > no, I'm using the extension tabbrowser preferences (that's what you mean, > right?). When I get a minute I'll uninstall it and try again. Does this work if you start firefox in safe mode (disables all extensions)
I don't know what the Mozilla convention is for "matching" IE behaviour, but according to the HTML 4.01 DTD, at http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#h-17.3 there is no valid "target" attribute for the form element. This is the same in the basic XHTML definitions and Strict XHTML also removes the special behaviour for 'target="_blank"' etc. on <a> elements. Personally, I was happy to see that: I like to choose for myself when to pop up a new window or tab...
WFM in three different builds + no response for months + extension that's done things like that = WFM. Please reopen if you can still reproduce the bug in a current build without TBE or TBP.
