Please attach a test case using the "attach file" button. It should be as small as possible to still reproduce the problem, almost always a single HTML file that we can load in the browser (i.e. not PHP, JSP, etc.).

Then, give exact instructions on how to reproduce the problem using your attached test file, including the browser and version to use.

The test case is necessary both to confirm that there's a bug, and for us to be able to debug the problem.

Alternately, you can give instructions on how to reproduce the problem with an existing test case (in the tests/ directory).

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

Changing status to "wontfix".

This was the IE bug where event handlers react to events they shouldn't, as documented in the Weird TabContainer Tabs Title behavior IE9 (Dojo 1.8.1) dojo-interest thread.

In brief, IIRC, the synthetically emitted attrmodified-focus was getting incorrectly caught by a listener for attrmodified-title.

... and the workaround is to stop using

<a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick=...>

and just use

<span onclick=...>
