Always check form validity when a form is submitted and block submission if needed even if there is no observer


(Core :: DOM: Core & HTML, defect, P5)





(Reporter: mounir, Unassigned)



bug 561636 blocks submission when a form is invalid only if there is an observer for "invalidformsubmit" event. So, it will prevent browsers using Gecko (like Fennec) to not submit a form without any UI thus confusing the user.

As long as HTML5 Forms isn't spread enough, we can consider no-one will assume a form will not be submitted if invalid so this behavior can be kept. However, we will have to remove it and, at this moment, not having a UI will be a browser bug.
