Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6

The ASX Company Announcements page shows a large list of PDFs.

Clicking on one "PDF" link makes an "agree" window pop-up, and you click "I Agree" to the terms. The pdf is downloaded and opened in a pdf reader and the "PDF" link turns pink ok.

If you click on another pdf to download it within a short time of the previous download (ie, less than 5-10mins), no "agree" window pops up, so you get the pdf immediately. However, the "PDF" link does not turn pink. If you wait sufficiently long so that an "agree" window pops up when you click a "PDF" link, then the link does turn pink.

Old versions of Firefox before 3.0 did not have this problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Visit http://www.asx.com.au/asx/statistics/prevBusDayAnns.do
2.Click a PDF
3.Click "I agree" in popup.
4.Click another PDF
Actual Results:  
The first PDF link turns pink.
The second does not.

Expected Results:  
Both PDF links should turn pink.

Old versions of Firefox before 3.0 did not have this problem.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later in safe mode? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.

You can also try to reproduce in Firefox 4 Beta 8 or later, there are many improvements in the new version, http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html

The problem still exists in 3.6.13 (and in safe mode), but is fixed in 4.0b8 which i just tried.

WFM, please update to Firefox 4 when it is released. Since this isn't a security bug it won't get backported to 3.6
