Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 64185
Konqueror stuck in Security Alert with file:/ link
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:21 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-9; Linux)
Description of problem:
When surfing to a certain site with links to my local filesystem, Konqueror
gets stuck with a dialogue "Security Alert - Konqueror This untrusted page
contains a link file:/D%7C/%A4u%A7%40/web/newvia2/images/banner/networking.swf
to your local file system."
When you click OK it only displays the dialogue again. It is impossible to
navigate away or close the window. Must xkill to make it go away.
I copied the offending site to my web server. I suggest opening this in a New
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Skipjack Beta 2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to a web page with a link to a local file (like the URL above)
Stuck in Security Alert loop. Must use xkill to stop it.
It should alert only once, and clicking OK should dismiss it.
I can confirm this.
Re-tested: Unable to confirm this bug in Red Hat Linux 7.3 at that particular URL.
email@example.com, what URL caused this for you?
Erhm, who has changed this from Skipjack-beta2 to Valhalla?
My comment on 2002-04-28 referred to Skipjack-beta2, of course, and the URL in
your report. I was also stuck in a dialog-box endless-loop.
Can't reproduce this with Valhalla.
Was anything added to KDE between Skipjack 2 and Valhalla that might have fixed
this? Just confirming.
Yes, this was fixed by updating to the post-3.0-release KDE_3_0_BRANCH in -11.
