User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.24) Gecko/20111103 Firefox/3.6.24
Build ID: 20111103063747

Steps to reproduce:

FF is configured to Open New Window in a Tab and also configured to show window.status.

Web page loaded in FF sets up window.status and thenopens a new Window which open in a Tab.

At this stage, Web page opened in new Tab sets window.status

Now switch back to original Tab



Actual results:

window.status of Original Tab is not shown. Instead you see window.status of New Tab.

This issue is observed with FF 3.6.24 as well as FF 8.0


Expected results:

window.status of the original Tab should have been shown.

Where and how can I exactly see "window.status" to reproduce this?
Please refer to http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/prop_win_status.asp

window.status is shown in Browser status area - left hand side of bottom bar.

You need to enable Javascript access to window.status in your Browser.

On FF8, please do the following.

Type about:config in URL bar 
Click on the button “I’ll be careful. I promise”. 
Locate “dom.disable_window_status_change” and change its value to false (default value is true)

Thx and Regards
