Hi.. It's possible to press CTRL+Mousebutton1 instead of Mousebutton3 to open a new Window/Tab .. a VERY nice feature for Notebook users.. ..and when you highlight an URL (eg. http://www.mozilla.org (url without <a href..) ) and hit Mousebutton3 Mozilla will load the URL.. i think it would be nice when you could also press CTRL+Mousebutton1 ...at the moment, CTRL+Mousebutton1 does something weired like 'selecting table cells'.. bye
I dislike the idea of middle-click-pasting and occasionally use Ctrl+click to select table cells, so I vote against this bug. I also object to this bug for the same reason I object to bug 10080: it would encourage content authors to include URLs in their documents without turning them into hyperlinks.
Summary: Highlighting an url and pressing CTRL+Mousebutton1 should open the URL → Highlighting an url and ctrl+left clicking should open the URL
> it would encourage content authors to include URLs in their documents without turning them into hyperlinks. Yes, but remember: sometimes you're reading plaintext files in mozilla and then such a function is very usefull... It was just an idea .. and on a laptop it's a pain to press mouse1 and 2 together.. but CTRL + Mouse1 is no problem.. (or Alt+Mouse1)
The right way to make URLs in plain text documents usable is bug 39042, "Display text/plain and *.txt using stream converters". This method would be very hard to discover.
No longer depends on: 10080

For HTML, bug 10080 is the right one. (But I think, Jesse, you misunderstood that bug. That bug doesn't turn non-linkified URLs in HTML documents automatically into links. I agree that this would be a bad idea, for several reasons.) IMO, this bug should be WONTFIX. > ..and when you highlight an URL (eg. http://www.mozilla.org (url without <a > href..) ) and hit Mousebutton3 Mozilla will load the URL.. What's happening here is actually a copy, paste and a load triggered by paste into the content area. I think, that works only on Unix and IMO it's a bad idea.
