Description Charles R. Anderson 2007-04-19 15:12:18 EDT
Description of problem: Sometimes, the right-click context menu in the terminal shows "Open Terminal" instead of "Open Link" when you right-click on a URL in the terminal window. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.18.0-1.fc7 vte-0.16.1-1.fc7 How reproducible: sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Right click a URL in a terminal window 2. First entry in the context menu is "Open Terminal" instead of "Open Link" Actual results: Selecting the first context menu item opens a new terminal. Expected results: The first context menu item should be "Open Link" and should launch a browser window or tab with that URL. Additional info: This used to work fine. Somewhere in an FC6 update and also with F7 development, the behavior changed and sometimes the context menu is incorrect. This is annoying since I end up opening terminals very often now by accident.

Can you give some examples of urls that do not work ? Does the terminal still recognize the urls and underlines them on mouse-over ?
Comment 2 Charles R. Anderson 2007-04-19 20:24:51 EDT
It doesn't matter what the URL is--all URLs are recognized as such, and they are underlined on a mouse-over. It is just that the right-click menu doesn't change for some reason. Perhaps, but I haven't checked this, the right-click is happening at a different cursor location than the mouse-over? Did the box of pixels that are recognized as the mouse-over get smaller and it is just me accidentally not clicking inside that box? Something definately changed...
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-04-20 14:25:25 EDT
What I notice is that url are not recognized anymore once they were scrolled off. scrolling back up and mousing over does not underline them.
Comment 4 Charles R. Anderson 2007-04-20 14:40:49 EDT
That's a separate bug then, because 90% of the URLs I click on are in emails in Mutt, and I cannot scroll the terminal running my Mutt session. I think that maybe the focus area got smaller. If I move the I-beam cursor up one pixel at a time, the top of the I-beam overlaps the bottom of the text for 4 pixels before the underline is activated on the 5th. Moving up to lines 5-10 keeps the text underlined, and then on the 11th line up the underline goes away. At this point the bottom of the I-beam cursor is just about in the middle of the text line.
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 20:11:00 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now, we will automatically close it. If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.
