Description Adam Williamson 2011-03-07 19:06:50 EST
GNOME Terminal's special handling of strings recognized as URLs in the terminal seems to be broken in current F15. To reproduce, go into a terminal and type 'http://www.google.com' . Note that if you mouse over it, an underline appears, indicating it has been recognized as a URL. However, if you click on it, it doesn't open the page in Firefox, as you'd expect (it appears to do nothing). If you right-click on it, there are no 'open link' or 'copy link address' options as there were in F14, it just shows the regular right-click menu. In addition, if you right-click on a URL and then click outside the right-click menu to exit it, the cursor will be stuck as the 'hand with pointing finger' image in that particular terminal tab (but not any other one).

ahaha. this is somewhat embarrassing. The described behaviour is exactly correct...for LXTerminal. Which I'd forgotten I was using because of bugs in GNOME Terminal early on in F15 cycle. =) Switched back to gnome-terminal and URL handling works as normal, I'll see if those bugs I was hitting before have gone away now.
