Gah! Mozilla got ahead of me there and posted before I was finished entering the
bug! :)

The basic problem is clicking web links in a message does not always do
anything. I seem to have tracked it down to be related to mozilla being open or not.

If mozilla is not already open, evolution can't seem to start it and nothing
happens when you click the link. If a mozilla window is already open, then
evolution seems to be able to start a new mozilla window without any problems.

Hmmm. Weird. Now I'm getting a problem sometimes even when Mozilla is running.

Clicking the web link does nothing, as does selecting the "Open in browser"
option" from the pop-up menu. Even weirder, the "copy link location" option
doesn't copy the link to the clipboard!

Restarting evolution doesn't seem to help with this problem though...
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-07-21 02:24:55 EDT
Now I'm completely confused, can't seem to get the functionality to work at all!

I've tried:

restarting evolution
restarting mozilla
restarting gnome

Nothing seems to help! Clicking on peoples email addresses does bring up the
"compose mail" window though...

I'm stuck. Perhaps there's a lock file or a config file or something that I need
to look at?

It looks like gnome-moz-remote is segfaulting, which is probably why it doesn't work

Guessing this has been fixed already?
