Description Ed Friedman 2004-07-28 18:04:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4)
Gecko/20030624 Netscape/7.1

Description of problem:
When e-mail is received that contains a http link, clicking on it will
open up mozilla and display that link.  If mozilla is already running
when the link is clicked, then a window will open asking the user to
pick a new name for the mozilla program to open.  Clicking on the name
shown gives the message that that name is already in use, and you
should select a different name.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evolution-1.4.6-2   kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Send e-mail to yourself containing any link.
2.Start up mozilla
3.Click on the link shown in the e-mail in evolution

Actual Results:  You are asked to pick a new name in order for mozilla
to open.

Expected Results:  The link selected should be displayed in the
mozilla program already open.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-10-25 20:57:36 UTC
Closing per lack of response.  Also note that FC1 and FC2 are no longer
supported even by Fedora Legacy.  If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4, please
assign to that version and Fedora Legacy.  If it still occurs on FC5 or FC6,
please reopen and assign to the correct version.
