Manual editing of permalink in address bar broken

Reported by: MHohmann Owned by: rails-dev@…

Keywords: permalink, address bar, layers Cc:


I'm using Firefox 23.0 on Ubuntu 12.04 and encountered the following problem:

  1. I navigate to and zoom into some area.
  2. In the address bar I get a permalink, say this one:
  3. I switch to the traffic map and the link changes like this:
  4. I remove the "&layers=T" part in the adress bar and hit Enter, thus reproducing the permalink I had there before.
  5. I do _not_ get to the previous view / Mapnik layer, but instead the traffic map stays and the "&layers=T" in the address bar reappears.


  1. I change the "&layers=T" to "&layers=C" (permalink to the cycle map).
  2. I do _not_ get to the cycle map, but instead the traffic map stays. The "&layers=C" and the "&layers=T" in the address bar reappears as soon as I change the map area.

Expected behaviour: Entering a new permalink in the address bar should navigate to whatever that permalink describes.

Actual behaviour: Entering those permalinks has no effect and the changes in the address bar are reverted.
