On Firefox 2, when a script used window.open('y.html') or <a href='y.html' target='_blank'> and the current window was oppenned using window.open('x.html', 'name', 'width=200,heigth=200'), the page oppenned in a new tab on the current window. Now on Firefox 3, the tab oppens on the first window. I develop a software that uses that behavior to group the related navigation tabs and limited my software to run on Firefox. Please, change the behavior to work as like the Firefox 2, because it is stealing me some sleep hours.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new window with window.open('x.html', 'name', 'width=200,heigth=200')
2. Open a new tab on the current "name" window window.open('y.html') or <a href='y.html' target='_blank'>
The new tab oppens on the parent window, not on the current window as on Firefox 2
Open the tab on the current window
None - basic installation
I use a site which (I guess) relies on this same feature and Firefox 3.0 is a disaster - ALMOST as bad as IE.
I fixed it by deleting Ver 3 and just use Firefox 2.0.
Is there reaaly any reason to use 3.0?
I've observed this exact behavior on FF 3.6.3 MAC. See example of the behavior here -> http://fattymelt.com/examples/WindowA.html
Strangely, I've been having this problem since upgrading from FF3.6 to FF4.
I confirm this bug too at:
