Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0
Build ID: 20151029151421

Steps to reproduce:

Right clicked a download, chose "open contianing folder" on an openSUSE Linux desktop.


Actual results:

It opened dolphin but in a non existent directory because Firefox passed the path with single quotes like this:

    '/home/myname/downloads'

So Dolphin tried to open:

    /home/myname/'/home/myname/downloads'


Expected results:

It should have stripped the single quotes before passing the path to Dolphin.
