Description Ilya Konstantinov 2006-01-09 16:41:34 EST
When Firefox is already running and XRemote is used to open the new URL, a URL
with a comma (,) will be passed to Firefox incorrectly. This is due to the
XRemote command parsing. The solution is probably to encode commas into the
relevant URL entities; same goes for spaces, which can also be mangled by XRemote.

My solution:
if [ "${USE_EXIST}" -eq "1" ] && [ "${ALREADY_RUNNING}" -eq "1" ]; then
  opt=`echo -n "$opt" | sed -e 's/,/%2c/g' -e 's/ /%20/g'`

Christopher, are you or are you not merging in my patch?

This is fixed since 21 Feb 2006. Cristopher, if this is fixed in FC5 as well,
please change resolution to CURRENTRELEASE.
