Scripts not running when page open in new tab

Reported by Scriptish | September 18th, 2011 @ 09:54 PM

I think this could be related to issues #368 and #171.

The // @include about:blank fix doesn't have any effect.

I haven't tested for the different events during the page load sequence, it doesn't work with document-end, so that's where I've staged this test from. The test script covers all the options I know how to open a new page in a tab, along with my findings in the comments.


You'll be pleased to know GM_openInTab() works, except that it ignores about:config > browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground = true and always opens in a foreground tab.

I require to open links in new background tabs, so I have been using window.open(href) up until recently when something in FF5.0, 6.0 has changed and now it doesn't work.
