Description (last modified by greiner)


Nightly 37.0a1 (2014-12-21)
e10s enabled
On Windows 8.1

How to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Try to subscribe to any filter list

Observed behaviour

Nightly shows this error message:

The address wasn't understood

Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (abp) isn't associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

You might need to install other software to open this address.

Expected behaviour

A dialogue to subscribe to the filter list should show up.

This is happening again or maybe still. When I disable e10s in the settings, it's working again. I think I had it disabled and that's why I set it to invalid back then.

Hi, just tested with latest Nightly and yes, it depends on whether E10S is active or not. When it is disabled abp:subscribe links works just fine.

I can confirm that this issue occurs only when e10s is enabled.
