#4195 closed defect (fixed)

addOnUnload not working for Firefox/

Reported by: guest Owned by: James Burke
Priority: high Milestone: 0.9
Component: Core Version: 0.9

I've been testing the first release candidate of 0.9 and I've found that dojo.addOnUnload(object, method) is not working for Firefox/ I've tested it in IE6 and it's working perfectly, and in my previous nightly build (from 08/03/2007) it was working for both browsers.

Can it be fixed in 0.9?

dojo.addOnUnload() seems to be working for me with r10236 (fetched today, 8/17/2007, Pacific time). Can you give a test case on how it is failing?

I used Firefox on OSX, and I had a simple HTML page with this script block in the head of the HTML document:

<script type="text/javascript">
    alert("we are unloading");

I get the alert if I reload the page or if I go to another web page.

If you can get a test case and attach it to this bug, in the next day or so, that would be good, since we are going to make the final 0.9 build probably this weekend.

Ok, here you are your sample into an HTML page

I've tested it with Mozilla Firefox for WINDOWS (may be that the problem?) (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; es-ES; rv: Gecko/20070725 Firefox/ and it's still not working using 0.9 rc1 nor using 8/17 nightly build... and it works perfectly with IE6

Oh, I forgot... I don't get any error with firebug, so I think the problem is that for some reason the onunload (or onbeforeunload) method is not being fired. I've been looking at the differences between the 0.9rc1 and the 08/03/2007 nightly build but I've not been able to find out what may the problem be.

(In [10248]) #Fixes #4195. addOnUnload not being called. Resulted from r10151. Adding a simple test and cleaning up docs (thanks to liucougar for pointing that out).

Thanks for the test case, it helped find the issue -- I realized I was using the wrong dojo.js in my previous test. Your test showed the breakage on OSX FF too.
