BUG Form largeted at _blank fails

Post by foobar » Mon Dec 10, 2018 10:20 pm

I have a GET form on a local HTML file that targets _blank which worked before Quantum, but now it fails to load. The new tab is created as about:blank, but the form is not submitted and no data is displayed in the new tab. If I disable NS, the form is submitted on the new tab and the results are displayed.

To replicate:
Create a local file with the contents I've included at the end of this message. Open the file in FF and attempt a search.

Expected behavior:
A new tab is created, the form is submitted and the results are displayed.

Actual behavior:
A new tab is created with about:blank.

Code: Select all

<form id="tsf" target="_blank" method="get" action="https://www.google.com.au/search" name="f">
<input id="lst-ib" type=text value="" name=q size=10>
<input value="Search" name="btnK" type="submit">
<input value="Clear" type="reset">

Working as expected on my end.

Test with all other extensions disabled.

Test in a new, clean Profile with only NoScript installed.
