Hyperlink dialog does not take selected file location from files Browser
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: installed 2.49.1 tried to modify my webpages by adding a link to another page Actual results: trying to add a 'link' does not work .... when you click on 'link' and the dialog box comes up then hit you 'choose' and select the page to link to nothing is selected therefore no link can be made Expected results: it should have put the selected target page into the dialog box
The problem is not reproducible with this very rare "something seems to work wrong" description. @reporter: Please contribute a problem related step by step instruction containing every key press and every mouse click how to reproduce your problem due to <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/QA/Bug_writing_guidelines> (similar to report in Bug 1139273)
1. edit an existing webpage 2. insert text anywhere on the page 3. highlight that text and hit 'link' from the menu bar 4. in the link properties dialog box that is displayed hit 'choose file' 5. select any webpage in your website directory to link to 6. at that point nothing happens the the link location field in the link properties box is empty in other words you are unable to link to anyother webpage in your website directory
I am pretty sure that the complained problem is the fact that currently the Hyperlink dialog only takes file location information in new documents before they will have been saved the first time. afterwards the file picker in dialog will not take the location information. I am pretty sure that I already left a comment in a bug report for this issue here in BZ, but I can't find the report.

This should be a duplicate of bug 1417819. It will be fixed in 2.49.2. If not please reopen afterwards. No eta. We are still polishing it and might get delayed because of the holidays. If you need a prerelease build urgently send me a mail.

(In reply to Frank-Rainer Grahl (:frg) from comment #4) > This should be a duplicate of bug 1417819. Yes, that's the one I did not find.
