Description (last modified by kzar)


Edge 44.17763.1.0, Adblock Plus 0.9.11

How to reproduce

  1. Click the Adblock Plus logo.
  2. Click the Cog symbol to open the options page.
  3. Repeat

Observed behaviour

The options page opens each time the cog button is clicked, even if it was already open.

Expected behaviour

If the options page is already open, clicking the cog should instead switch to that tab.


  • Thanks to Ross for spotting this one.
  • It seems that Microsoft have added the browser.runtime.openOptionsPage somewhere in between version 42 and 44 of Edge, but it doesn't function properly. It opens the options page each time it's called, even if the options page is already open.
  • See this Microsoft Edge bug:
  • This in turn causes more problems, see #7215.
