Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51300
mozilla nautilus component will crash when trying to submit a form
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
When trying to submit a search form at google's search engine the nautilus
component will crash.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.google.com
2. Type something in to search
3. Click the search button
The component crashes.
The search will work.
Even with the fix for this installed nautilus will still barf on the form
because of the warning that mozilla wants to produce. I'll attach a
seperate patch for that issue.

There are two patches here. The first is for Mozilla. It's being included in
the 0.9.2-10 rpm which I'm trying to spin.
The second is for Nautilus. It adds the ability to create windows off of the
mozilla view for special Mozilla chrome windows. These chrome windows include
alerts on web pages, a dialog that might ask you for your http password or the
warning about the form that you are about to submit being insecure.
Without this patch you can't submit the form on google's site because there's a
warning dialog that's supposed to pop up to warn you about submitting insecure
data. Nautilus doesn't support opening a chrome window so you can never click
OK on the dialog so you are never able to submit forms. How's that for fun?
Crap. It just occurred to me that I forgot to add the ability to close down the
new widgets in question if the view was destroyed which was the whole reason
that I added the list of windows. I'll fix that up in the morning. It's late.

patch after alex's kind comments
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Fixed in rawhide.
