Second external URL request does not open page


(Firefox for Android :: General, defect, P1)

(Reporter: lmandel, Assigned: gcp)


I have been testing the native UI browser with the built in FriendStream app on my HTC Desire. The first time I click on a link in FriendStream Firefox launches and opens the page as expected. If I then return to FriendStream and click on another link Firefox launches but does not open the page. I am instead shown the previous page from my first link. (The page does not reload).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Force stop nightly if running.
2. Open FriendStream and click on a link in a tweet. Firefox nightly launches and opens the page.
3. Click the back button to return from nightly to FriendStream.
4. Click on a different link in a FriendStream. Nightly launches but does not change the page. The page from the link in 2 is still shown.

Expected result:
When I click on the link in 4 I expect that URL to be opened in the browser.

Actual result:
The page from the URL in 2, which was previously loaded, is still displayed.
can you retest?  I may have fixed this with:
Priority: -- → P1
Happy to retest as soon as I get a new build. Not that I found this after updating (via prompt to update) last night.

Rereading my previous comment, the last line should have read:

NOTE that I found...

I retested with a newer build and can not reproduce the issue. Looks like your fix was good. I have resolved as fixed.
