Description

8 months ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:49.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0 SeaMonkey/2.46
Build ID: 20161213183751

Steps to reproduce:

1. I drag the web site icon in Seamonkeys address bar to the desktop to make an Internet shortcut.
2. I then Drag this icon over Seamonkeys icon on the taskbar, where I am prompted to pin it to Seamonkey.
3. Right-cliking Seamonkey icon in the taskbar, now show the pinned Interne shortcut in the list of pinned sites, as expected.
4. I click the new site...


Actual results:

I get a message with this text in Danish:
------------------------------
[Window Title]
Der er et problem med genvejen

[Content]
Denne internetgenvej kan ikke åbnes. Protokollen “SeaMonkeyURL” har ikke et registreret program.

[OK]
------------------------------

Translated it is something like:
------------------------------
[Window Title]
There is a problem with the shortcut

[Content]
This Internet shortcut can not be opened. The Protocol “SeaMonkeyURL” does not have an registered program.

[OK]
------------------------------

Here is my Registry setting for SeamonkeyURL:
------------------------------
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SeaMonkeyURL]
@="SeaMonkey URL"
"FriendlyTypeName"="SeaMonkey URL"
"EditFlags"=dword:00000002

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SeaMonkeyURL\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\SeaMonkey\\seamonkey.exe,0"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SeaMonkeyURL\shell]
@="open"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SeaMonkeyURL\shell\open]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SeaMonkeyURL\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\SeaMonkey\\seamonkey.exe\" -requestPending -osint -url \"%1\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SeaMonkeyURL\shell\open\ddeexec]
@="\"%1\",,0,0,,,,"
"NoActivateHandler"=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SeaMonkeyURL\shell\open\ddeexec\Application]
@="SeaMonkey"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SeaMonkeyURL\shell\open\ddeexec\Topic]
@="WWW_OpenURL"
------------------------------


Expected results:

Seamonkey should have opened the pinned shortcut.

I can add that the same procedure works in FireFox, Opera and Internet Explorer 11, but not in Google Chrome and Safari

I can confirm reporter's observations with unzipped installer of  UNofficial (by Adrian Kalla) en-US SeaMonkey 2.53a1 (NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0 Build 20170620091523  (Default Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit.

but I don't know what that means. SM-problem? OS-Problme? Something else?

I can now add that it is only on my Windows 7 PC's that it happens, not on my Windows 8.1 and 10 machines.
