Description (last modified by Ross)


ABP (Devbuild)
Edge 44.17763.1.0 / EdgeHTML 18.17763

How to reproduce

  1. Install freash Edge build.
  2. Navigate to
  3. Select the subscribe button.
  4. Close Options tab.
  5. Select the subscribe button.
  6. Close Options tab.
  7. Select the subscribe button.
  8. Don't close the Options tab.
  9. Repeat Steps 7-8 several times.

Observed behaviour

Steps 3-5:
If no Options page is already open, the Options page opens with the overlay displayed (expected). If the Options page is closed and the steps repeated, the Options page opens with the overlay displayed (expected).

Steps 7-9:
If no Options page is already open, the Options page opens with the overlay displayed (expected).

If the user then switches back without closing the Options page and selects the subscribe link again, another Options page (2nd) is opened but the overlay is not displayed.

If the user then swtiches back again and selects the subscribe link, another Options page (3rd) is opened but without the overlay. However the overlay that was missing from the (2nd) Options page above is then displayed.

Expected behaviour

The add subscription overlay to be visible after the user selects a subscription link.

I think that this will be practically solved once #7216 is fixed and we avoid Edge opening the options page multiple times in the first place. But up to you if you want to have subscription links work correctly when there's multiple instances of the options page open.

I agree that there's no need to fix this issue if the scenario causing it can't be reproduced. Therefore I'd say let's wait until #7216 is done and then close this issue if we can no longer reproduce it.

We can always reopen the ticket or create a new one in case this issue resurfaces due to a different scenario we're not aware of at this point.

Can we close this ticket now or is it still reproducible after #7216?
