Websites can simulate a click on abp:subscribe links. While the user still needs to confirm the subscription to be added, this can be irritating in particular if websites repeatedly do that.

What to change

Ignore simulated clicks on abp:subscribe links based on Event.isTrusted (where supported).

Fixed. Tested via attempting to click it via the console and via a script added to a locally served copy of the testpages (and its subscribe link).
