From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1a+) Gecko/20020621 BuildID: 2002062109 this *might* be mirc problem, but it works with IE correctly. mIRC, someone types a url, you right click on it, and have the option of either opening in a new browser, or use the one thats always open. With IE this works correctly, but with mozilla (all builds so far i guess) the browser ALWAYS opens a new window. It gets cumbersome to have a new window open when you can just reuse the other one. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. run mirc and type in/have someone type a url 2. right click on url 3. choose "open" and it opens a new browser, fine. 4. choose "open" again, and instead of reusing the previous browser, it opens yet a new one. Again, this behavior does not exist in I.E. or opera if i remember correctly. Actual Results: browsers keep opening a new window. Expected Results: browser should reuse (if any) previously opened windows Note on the status of this bug... i chose "Minor" because it is, but a little note: Minor: well, its a minor loss of function, but i dont think there is a work around.
IMO, this should be a Mozilla pref (bug 75138), not an mIRC pref. IE already has this pref and I don't know why mIRC copies it.
This is not a question of prefs. It is a context menu option. Do you know if mIRC uses DDE to open the URL? and if so, what DDE commands does it issue differently? I couldn't find any documentation in MSDN about this issue to determine if there is an accepted standard for external applications to "Open in New Window" Component->XP Apps: GUI Features; dependent on 75138
