selectWindow TAB=OPEN allowed from blank tab or internal browser page

Hi @admin

In the past the Open command for firefox didn’t work work from a non web page (example about:config or a blank tab) after some updates open command now working on blank page or non web page.

I start macro always in new tab (to not override old tab) but if I try to start macro in new tab starting from non web page it show error and do not work.

I suggest to add the same propriety of open command in selectWindow TAB=OPEN to allow to start command from a non web page to (actually open command can open an url from a non web page but selectWindow TAB=OPEN can NOT open a url from a non web page).

The same thing is possible to add in selectWindow TAB=OPEN ?


Good point, I opened a ticket for it (762).

Test macro:
