When I click on any link that has target=_blank specified, no new window is opened. In fact, nothing happens at all within the GUI. This also happens when target=some_string and some_string doesn't refer to another frame. Also, when the link is clicked, mozilla pegs the CPU for a few seconds and then prints "Document http://... loaded successfully" on stdout... but the new window doesn't appear! This happened, ironically, with the bugzilla helper form. Reproduce: 1. Load the specified URL 2. Left click on one of the first two links Actual results: CPU is pegged for several seconds and then "Document http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ loaded successfully" is printed in the terminal Expected results: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ should be opened in a new window, after the CPU is pegged of course :-) Workaround: Click with middle button and the new window opens as expected (but the referring site isn't sent; this is documented in another bug) History: This has happened with all nightlies I've gotten within the last two weeks or so
Additional information: This also happened when I cleared out ~/.mozilla The page also seems to be loaded over the network, even when it is not displayed
Works fine in Windows BTW. (2001052720)
confirmed. this is already reported though. i will try to find the original tomorrow if no one has it sooner.
I have the same problem. I can't search bugzilla with mozilla. Eventhough a new window doesn't appear when clicking a link with target=_blank, the "Tasks" menu includes the new window in the list of open windows.
Dup of Bug 82790? 82790 has a comment that mentions that creating a new profile may help duplicate it. Works for me with Linux 2001052908 with an old profile.
Mark, are you still seeing this with a May 30 or newer build?
Boris - Works great for me on a newer build! (2001053021)
