I would suggest you to use a console.log
statement instead of alert
in order to test events, since the result may be misleading otherwise. With this said, I was unable to reproduce the issue on my side. The event is fired once as expected.
Nevertheless if you are still experiencing any issues, please send me a sample project where the problem is reproducing, so I could assist you further.
I wish you a great day!
