'target' tag is not being honored with Firefox-3.0 when we try to dynamically load a page
Posted on 2008-11-13
I have 3 frames say SeacrhInput, SearchResult and ContentFrame in my webpage.
In SearchInput frame, when we enter the search word followed by clicking a search button, a request would be sent to a python server which shows a set of links in the SearchResult frame (just below the search input frame) with the 'target' as ContentFrame as shown below:
<a href="search_result1.html" target="ContentFrame" >Result1 </a>
When I click on the above link, a request is sent to the server and the server shows the page in a new tab as opposed to the existing
ContentFrame in the same page. This was being honored with Firefox-2.x but not with Firefox-3. However it's worth noticing that all
the search result links are getting opened in the same tab but not that we see per tab per page/link.
PS: In my case, Firefox-3.0 config option 'security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy' is set to false.
I changed the config with
Any insights would highly be appreciated.
