How to reproduce

  1. In lib/ui.js replace
    let notification = Notification.getNextToShow(url);
    let notification = {
      links: ["contribute"],
      message: "Click on <a>this link</a> to open window",
      title: "Notification",
      type: "information"
  2. Build and load extension
  3. Go to any webpage, notification pops up
  4. Click on link in notification
  5. Reload webpage, notification pops up
  6. Click on link in notification

Observed behaviour

  • Step (4) opens one new window
  • Step (6) opens two new windows

Expected behaviour

  • Step (4) opens one new window
  • Step (6) opens one new window


We attach a click listener to the notification to handle clicks on links contained inside the notification message. However, this listener is added each time a notification is shown without ever removing them which means that the more notifications are shown the more windows are being opened.

What to change

Move the click listener declaration in lib/ui.js from the _showNotification() method to the applyToWindow() method.

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
