Description User image Andrea Giammarchi 2009-08-17 01:18:00 PDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20090729 Firefox/3.5.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20090729 Firefox/3.5.2

Accordingly with W3 draft:
Each Storage object provides access to a list of key/value pairs, which are sometimes called items. Keys are strings. Any string (including the empty string) is a valid key.
but this is not true in Firefox

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.sessionStorage.setItem("", "test");
Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
the string "test"

associate the empty string with the data "string" as other browsers do

I can confirm this on 3.5.2 (Mac OS X). Dupes not found, marking as new.

Can you please add a test for this to test_localStorageBase.html, test_sessionStorageBase.html and all storageevent/ tests?

Not sure why you are removing these tests...

I'm not removing the tests, just the annotations that they failed.
