Javascript : Updating the search parameters with window.location

I ran into an issue with Firefox not navigating to a new address I set via windows.location. Here's an example of a url I was trying to set.


window.location = "?page=account&this=that&foo=bar";

There's a property on the location object called search. When updating a partial url this should be used.

window.location.search = "?page=account&this=that&foo=bar";

  1. Does not seem to work on Firefox or Edge. I make the change, I see no difference in the URL. I press the refresh (F5) and all is same as before

    1. I opened the debug panel in FF and typed in 'window.location.search = "?foo=bar'. It refreshed the page and added the search parameters to the URL.
