User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:13.0) Gecko/20120324 Firefox/13.0a2
Build ID: 20120324042010

Steps to reproduce:

I use several Javascript bookmarks in my bookmarks toolbar and they no longer work in when selected on a new tab under Aurora 13a. An example of such a bookmark would be:

   javascript:x=escape(getSelection());if(!x)%7Bvoid(x=prompt('Search%20Wikipedia%20for?',''))%7D;window.location='http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search='+x+'&go=Go'

They work everywhere else without problems, just not on newly opened tabs with the new New Tab display.


Actual results:

Nothing happens when a Javascript bookmark is clicked.


Expected results:

It should have opened a dialogue asking for a search term, passing that on to the site in the URL in the latter part of the contents.

Setting to new. Loading the bookmarked URL in new tab doesn't work in F13 Aurora.

Yup, happening here too (Mageia Linux 64bit 13.0.1). I thought it was broken generally, but I now see it's only on the new tab page with the fancy common sites thingy.

I have a few js bookmarks, some for keyword searches for sites where simple %s replacements are not enough, where this can get quite annoying as it's typically on the new tab page where I use these.
