Description

16 years ago
go to http://dilbert.gemal.dk/ and do File -> Edit page you get a error saying:
"this type of page cant be edited"

the error is not perfect.

I'd like to see something like this
"This type of page (image/gif) cannot be edited"

most alerts use "cannot" and not "can't"

Agree with Henrik: "This type of page (image/gif) cannot be edited."

Reassigning to Charley (cmanske@netscape.com) for implementation.

We'd have to look at whatever mimetype is and show different error messages for
each. A good idea that will have to wait 'till next release.

This will have to be implemented in new code that will be written as part of 
removing editorShell (bug 121648.) The mimetype detection will be in a new 
location in the code.
Depends on: 121648

Is this bugfile still active?
If I load an image file in a Mozilla window, then the Edit Page Ctrl+E menuitem
becomes dimmed, disabled, inoperant. So this bug appears to be FIXED.

Mozilla 1.8a3 build 2004082007 under XP Pro SP1a here.

MASS-CHANGE:
This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state.

If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way.
If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.
