From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051201 Fedora/1.5-1 Firefox/1.5
Description of problem:
openurl() seems to truncate the passed URL if it contains commas. The above mentioned URL will not open correctly if firefox is already running. The URL passed to firefox, through, openurl is truncated to:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute firefox
2. Execute /usr/lib/firefox-1.5/mozilla-xremote-client -a firefox 'openurl(http://nl.internet.com/ct.html?rtr=on&s=1,22fr,1,hfcu,kuvm,jjrf,fhg)'
The above was glommed from debugging /usr/bin/firefox
3. Note blank page in firefox and truncated URL
Actual Results: Blank page appears in firefox and URL is truncated.
Expected Results: Firefox should take me to the requested URL. This worked correctly prior to 1.5.
To get the information in Step 2 above I added:
exec >> /tmp/firefox.log 2>&1
Problem seems to be fixed in the latest 1.5 release. Tested under
MIght be related to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=304000
We just updated the Firefox version in Fedora/development from 2.0 to a 3.0
pre-release version, which improves performance, memory usage, and fixes many
bugs and crashes.
Closing as CANTFIX since we aren't fixing bugs filed against 2.0 now that 3.0 is
in. If this bug is still present in rawhide using a Firefox 3.0 version, please
re-open this bug.
Thanks and Happy Holidays
