Description of problem:
Whenever I open any office document in Mozilla or Mozilla Firefox (i.e. .sxw file), it sticks on the local disk. Then after I start OpenOffice it starts to recover this file which is annoying and confusing behavior.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Firefox and type an URL address to any .sxw file
2. Click Back on Firefox to close opened file
3. Run OpenOffice Writer (or any other OpenOffice application)
Actual Results: OpenOffice will try to recover viewed file
Expected Results: OpenOffice should start as usual
It is annoying and confusing.
After having OOo want to open crashed documents a few times, I finally figured
out that this is what is happening to me as well. Documents with strange names
or unknown because the titles in the WWW page may have no meaning.
Procedure is to open a link that is viewed in OOo using the plugin. Then open
OOo and you will get a recovery dialog.
Three different machines. All using Mozilla.
i cannot reproduce this problem in FC5 release with current FC5 update.
You are recommended to update to new release. Thanks for your report.
