On iOS Safari the "Press This" Bookmarklet has to be pressed twice to work, it creates a new Safari window, but the new window remains hidden behind the current window. The user is unaware that this new window has been created.

In addition, the new hidden window is BLANK the first time the "Press This" bookmarklet is pressed, you then need to press the Bookmarklet a second time (from the main window), and then the second window gets populated properly.

To summarize: on iOS (9 and earlier) Safari

1 - "Press This" bookmarklet creates a new window when pressed once, but that window remains hidden behind the current safari window

2 - The new window is not only hidden, but is also blank. No URL is selected, it's just a new popup blank window

3 - You have to press the "Press This" bookmarklet a second time (from the original main window) to get the second window to be properly populated.

4 - Even after the second press of the bookmarklet, the new window still remains hidden behind the main Safari window. The user has no idea that anything has occurred, so the user thinks the bookmarklet is not working at all.

This issue has been happening since Press This received the major overhaul earlier this year.

  • Focuses accessibility removed

If I recall correctly, the pop-under is something out of our control, but I may be wrong. Thanks for the report.

I cannot seem to reproduce this, but yes, iOS opening tabs in the background is out of our control.

It actually works correctly now.. does NOT open behind the current window. So it has been fixed.... most likely on the iOS side.
