Sometimes we see a problem with hyperlinks and redirects in Firefox.
Often, while users of standard Firefox do not see this problem, I see it in Firefox Developer Edition (MacOS), which usually is 1 version ahead of standard Firefox. Not now, though.
On Nov 19 we were contacted by a customer who experienced the problem in Firefox standard edition 94.0.1 (Win).
I have two examples of appearance of the problem.
Unable to redirect to another domain. This code does not work:
top.window.location.href = 'https://bitbucket.org/site/oauth2'
I cannot use
navigator.gobecause it does not allow to change domain.
Hyperlinks. This link does nothing on click:
<a href="/plugins/servlet/ac/com.xiplink.jira.git.jira_git_plugin/configuration-config" target="_parent">Manage repositories</a>
Unfortunately, it’s hard to reproduce because it seems to require the right version of Firefox in the right moment. But maybe someone has experienced this problem or a known workaround exists.
