Description Aleksey Nogin 2001-05-16 02:36:31 EDT
/usr/bin/mozilla would not work if called with a URL argument that contains
comas - mozilla-bin considers coma to be an argument separater in -remote
"openurl($URL)", not part of the URL.

My solution to this problem is replacing all comas in the URL with %2C.

P.S. Is this the right place for /usr/bin/mozilla bugs? Or now that
mozilla.org buuilds nightly (actually, more line weekly) RPMs, they belong
to bugzilla.mozilla.org?
Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2001-06-09 18:02:50 EDT
Hang on, is it a problem with the command line parsing in mozilla or is it the
shell script itself that has the problem?  What is an example url on the command
line that shows the problem?
Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2001-06-09 18:15:17 EDT
Possibly the interaction of the two. However, I no longer seem to be able to
reproduce it with recent builds
