mozbrowserlocationchange

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The mozbrowserlocationchange event is fired when a browser <iframe>'s location changes — it is fired every time navigation occurs.

detail

The detail property returns an anonymous JavaScript object with the following properties:

url
A DOMString representing the URL of the new location.
canGoBack
A Boolean that defines whether it's possible to go back in the navigation history (true) or not (false).
canGoForward
A Boolean that defines whether it's possible to go forward in the navigation history (true) or not (false).

Example

This example updates the URL bar so that it will always display the correct URL for the current location.

var browser = document.querySelector("iframe");

browser.addEventListener('mozbrowserlocationchange', function (event) {
  urlBar.value = event.detail.url;
});
