Description Alex Lancaster 2005-07-15 06:37:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Galeon/1.3.21

Description of problem:
The whole URL is not passed to the webbrower when right-clicking and selecting "Open Link".  E.g. http://www.gnome.org rather than (correct) http://www.gnome.org/.  This causes problems with some rather fussy websites that stick to a strict definition of a URL that should always include the trailing "/".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "rpm -qi passivetex" in a gnome-terminal
2. Right click on the URL in the rpm output: http://www.tei-c.org.uk/Software/passivetex/
3. Select "Open Link".
4. Wait for the configured webbrowser to open.

Actual Results:  The browser opens with the URL "http://www.tei-c.org.uk/Software/passivetex" (with a missing trailing slash "/") and returns a "404" error.

Expected Results:  The entire URL (including the "/" should have been passed). "http://www.tei-c.org.uk/Software/passivetex/".

Additional info:

You can see that the entire URL is not selected when the mouse hovers over the URL and the trailing slash is not underlined like the rest of the URL.  Here is an ASCII "screenshot":

URL         : http://www.tei-c.org.uk/Software/passivetex/

This has been fixed upstream in GNOME bug:

Fixed in gnome-terminal-2.11.2 upstream, see:


Any chance of an update?

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 3 Alex Lancaster 2007-01-23 20:09:50 EST
This is fixed on FC-6 in gnome-terminal-2.16.0-2.fc6.  According to
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=170364 it was fixed sometime in the
gnome-terminal-2.15.x series.
