Description (last modified by kzar)


Chrome Version 30.0.1599.66
Adblock Plus development build

How to reproduce

  1. Open the options page
  2. Attempt to add a new filter list subscription

Observed behaviour

Nothing happens, the subscription is not added. This is shown in the options page console:

Uncaught Error: Invocation of form runtime.sendMessage(object, undefined, null) doesn't match definition runtime.sendMessage(optional string extensionId, any message, optional function responseCallback) schemaUtils:113
normalizeArgumentsAndValidate schemaUtils:113
(anonymous function) binding:307
(anonymous function) options.js:59
addSubscriptionClicked options.js:376
f.event.dispatch jquery-1.7.1.min.js:3
h.handle.i jquery-1.7.1.min.js:3

Expected behaviour

The subscription to be added, with no exception in the console.


This is being caused when ext.backgroundPage.sendMessage is called with a callback of undefined. It works correctly when the callback is omitted instead.

Hints for testers

Ensure that you can successfully use the options page from Chrome 30. For example try adding a subscription, make sure it is really added. Check the JavaScript console for the options page for exceptions.

This is fixed for adding subscriptions from the options page and first-run page.

However adding subscriptions from abp:subscribe links doesn't work at all (nothing happens) in Chrome 30. Subscribe links work fine in later Chrome (36, 37 so far).

Chrome 30 / Windows 7

That's something else but still needs fixing, mind filing an issue?
