The first, where an onClick event is triggered on every single page link is well-reported throughout this Bugzilla. The bug reported *here* is that the code which is posted at the following URL works at all: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=177087 Firefox should *not* interpret onMouseMove as a user-generated request to permit a window.open() command. But it does, and if the technique becomes more widely known it willl render the popup blocker mostly useless. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Clear all browser cookies from *.sitepoint.com 2. Visit sitepoint.com 3. Popup appears as soon as the mouse is moved. Actual Results: Opened a popup window Expected Results: Should have blocked the popup
Created attachment 174017 [details] onmousemove testcase WFM, 1.0 and latest-nightly on WinXP, on Sitepoint (until I click) and the testcase. Is your build broken, or is popup blocking broken on Linux?
Works for me. I visited your link and the information bar appeared saying that a popup has been blocked. I'm using Firefox 1.0. Resolving as WFM pending confirmation.
