new File() no longer replaces slashes in filename

Published:

Categories: DOM

Releases: Firefox 81

Description

Previously in Firefox, the File constructor had replaced any / character (slash) in the filename parameter with a : (colon). This normalization is currently not implemented in other browsers, and after a discussion, the File API spec is going to be revised to remove it. Therefore, the slash replacement operation has been removed with Firefox 81.
