Ping on this issue
CCing caillon/blizzard. From bug 147397 it's really not clear how this has been
fixed and I couldnt find anything obvious in the patches. Also was an fc3 update
issued for this?
I'd say it's likely the mozilla fix to also fix epiphany but... I cant say for
sure without seeing the patch.
This issue has been fixed. It was a mozilla bug, not an epiphany bug.
