Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1
Build ID: 20111220165912

Steps to reproduce:

STR:
1) Open http://www.washingtonpost.com/
2) Find section "Featured Videos" on the main page (middle area)
3) Click on a video thumbnail, e.g. "Lady Gaga, Bloomberg dance as Times Square revelers cheer 2012"


Actual results:

Clicking on the video thumbnail brings to the underlying link http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/lady-gaga-bloomberg-dance-as-times-square-revelers-cheer-2012/2012/01/01/gIQAssWHUP_modal.html then eventually to http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/lady-gaga-bloomberg-dance-as-times-square-revelers-cheer-2012/2012/01/01/gIQAssWHUP_video.html but doesn't display the video (Flash) in a pop-up centered on black overlay in the background.

In addition, the page switching function < > of the right video panel doesn't work if you go back to the main page after clicking on the video thumbnail (e.g. back to main page from http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/lady-gaga-bloomberg-dance-as-times-square-revelers-cheer-2012/2012/01/01/gIQAssWHUP_modal.html).

NB: You can test with the section "Featured Photo Galleries", similar issue. Click on a gallery, the slide show never appears and stays gray and empty.

It's broken in Firefox 9 and higher.


Expected results:

Firefox should display the video pop-up and run the Flash stream (see attachments).

I used mozregression to find the regression, here the result:

m-c
Last good nightly: 2011-09-27
First bad nightly: 2011-09-28
Pushlog: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=1f800c226837&tochange=7f4867717226

m-i
Last good nightly: 2011-09-26
First bad nightly: 2011-09-27
Pushlog: http://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/pushloghtml?fromchange=29f857ce7e31&tochange=80ff402f2f7e

It's the same range than in another regression, see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=713745#c9

Sorry,I forgot Clear cache after changing UA.

The following UA spoofing helps.
user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/9.0.597.107 Safari/534.13");
