[FIX]Clicking link in Gmail launches extra blank tab


(Core :: Security: CAPS, defect, P1)

(1 file)

Link in tab launches first a blank untitled tab, then the tab with the link.

Regression between 1.9a1_2006061914 and 1.9a1_2006061917.
Caused by Bug 337260?
What are the steps to reproduce this starting with a vanilla trunk build with a brand-new account?
I meant brand-new profile.
- Go to Gmail and login
- Open this message from bugzilla

Ah, sorry. I assumed wrongly that your bugmail was in Gmail. :)

> Link in tab 
That was a typo. Meant "Link in Gmail".
Clicking every external link there launches an extra blank tab, also the adds on the right side.
Ah, ok.  I can reproduce this.  I can also reproduce this after backing out bug 337260 locally...
No longer blocks: 337260
Thanks for the effort of backing out in any case. :)
That range is correct enough, but the link unnecessarily wide.
But it still contains too many bugs and too little possible culprits:

I'll try to poke at this some more later today, I guess.
Backing out the patch from bug 337746 seems to fix the regression.

Mine, then.  And that makes sense; I'm seeing an attempt to set window.opener to null fail with a security exception.  Investigating now.

Attached patch FixSplinter Review
There were actually three separate issues here:

1)  moz-safe-about protocol handler had the wrong contractid
2)  The check for about:blank in the security manager was using the innermost
    URI, which is a moz-safe-about URI.
3)  The moz-safe-about URIs didn't preserve the original path, which was needed
    to fix issue #2.

This patch makes gmail happy.
