Bug Description


Using Firefox 16.01 (last stable version) with OpenERP 6.1, on runbot.

On an editable list view, when we switch from a line to another, sometimes happens a "self.edition_form is undefined" exception.
It also happens that a line entirely disappear.

I couldn't reproduce it on chrome, but it is easily reproducible on Firefox (seems to happen more often when we change rapidly from a line to another.

I'll attach a screencast.

Have a nice day

Really easy to reproduce on every editable tree where you can switch from list to form:

- Start to edit one line
- Click on the "Form" button
==> Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'stop' of undefined

On latest 6.1 stable branch, with Firefox 18 and Chrome 24

But actually the proposed fix is at least fixing this case. So maybe more occurrence of this bug exists.

I've just added a check before to avoid this window to popup:

if (typeof self.edition_form != 'undefined') {
