#5309 closed defect (worksforme)

New Identity fails to close windows with prompt dialogs

Reported by: cypherpunks Owned by: tbb-team
Priority: High Milestone:
Component: Applications/Tor Browser Version:
Severity: Normal Keywords: tbb-newnym

Steps to reproduce:

  1. open a new tab
  2. press CTRL+SHIFT+K to open the console
  3. type alert(0) in the command line and press enter
  4. press CTRL+SHIFT+K to close the console
  5. select New Identity from Torbutton

The tab will fail to close. I noticed this on a website that prompts users when it detects a Tor exit node, if you press New Identity without closing the alert dialog then the tab will remain open.
