Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 25778
/usr/bin/netscape should use "openURL ($url, new-window)"
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:18:36 EDT
Currently the newbrowser() function in the /usr/bin/netscape has the
$netscape $defsrem "xfeDoCommand(openBrowser)" 2>/dev/null && \
$netscape $defsrem "openURL($url)" 2>/dev/null
This is extremely suboptimal. The correct way of doing it would be
$netscape $defsrem "openURL($url,new-window)" 2>/dev/null
This way we only start new netscape process once instead of twice and the
new netscape window would go directly to $url instead of going to home page

A patch to fix /usr/bin/netscape
This is already fixed in the current netscape package.
The xfeDoCommand stuff also breaks pretty badly if mozilla happens
to be running on the same display.
