#4335 closed defect (fixed)

Adblock Plus should forget pop-ups after the initial load

Description (last modified by trev)


Adblock Plus, Firefox 51.0a1

How to reproduce

  1. Add ||^$,popup to your Adblock Plus filters.
  2. Go to
  3. Click on any news link (in the middle of the page), it will open in a new tab.
  4. In that tab, click the link "Одноклассники" (fourth from left at the very top of the page).

Observed behaviour

The tab is closed. This is a regression from #3568 I think, if a window started out as a pop-up Adblock Plus for Firefox will always treat it as a pop-up - no matter how often navigation occurs.

Expected behaviour

Pop-up blocking should no longer affect navigation in this tab, it's no longer a pop-up.

Fixed. Pages that open as a popup/new tab that are then navigated in by the user are no longer still treated as popups and automatically closed.

This patch seemed to stop base64 popup blocking;
