From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020222 BuildID: 2002022203 If you look at the bottom of the page above you will see something that can be improved... At the bottom of the page there is a link http://msdn.microsoft.com/developer/downloads/files/ 40comupd.htm. that link is written in two lines, as above but is not shown as a link. So you will have to do 2 copy and paste and to go to taht URL. So, 3 things could be done by you guys... 1) put a box on preferences where one can turn on all links to be a link even if no one puts it as a link or 2) give mozilla the ability to read the clipboard and see that link in two lines, converting it to a one line when one issues a CONTROL V on address line 3) give an option on right click, as GOTO ADDRESS "BLA BLA" as the one which says SEARCH GOOGLE for "bla bla". think about that as your homework... :-) regards, Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to the URL... 2. 3. Actual Results: boring... Expected Results: coolness! nothing to say...
This feature request is already filed (bugs exist covering all three approaches). And a webmaster who gives <a> a target but not an href should be shot on sight...
2) bug 23485 browser window should strip newlines from url pastes 3) bug 10080 [RFE] Recognition of highlighted text as URL I don't see a bug on #1, but it's a bad idea for the same reason as #3: it would increase the number of non-hyperlinked urls in web pages because web authors would forget to put in hrefs.
