Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:13.0a1) Gecko/20120213 Firefox/13.0a1 STR: 1. Open Error Console 2. Type top.location='http://mozilla.org/' (or any other URL; e.g: 'file:///c:/', 'about:config', etc) 3. Hit Enter/Press "Evaluate" Actual result: The page from the URL in step 2 will be opened INSIDE Error Console. One cannot go back to Error console, unless opening again from menu (or closing and opening again with keyboard shortcuts) Expected result: The expression should be evaluated; provided url should not open in Error Console Note: Reproducible back to Firefox 3.6 (3.6.26)

> The expression should be evaluated; provided url should not open in Error Console INVALID? Working as designed (i.e. you shouldn't do that). Evaluating the expression *should* load the url into the chrome window. What did you expect evaluating the expression to do?
That was my initial reaction, too, but the suggestion in IRC was to display an error instead of modifying the error console window. It does sound reasonable for a dialog that is not made for browsing.
Closing as INVALID => Working as designed.
