Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Make a few (3 in my case) bookmarks pointing to a file on your file system (file:// bookmarks) 2.Click on the first bookmark with a middle mouse button. Actual Results: All 3 file:// bookmarks are opened. If you already had multiple tabs opened, the conten of these tabs is replaced with the one of bookmarks. Expected Results: Open a new tab with the bookmark that was clicked on.
I don't understand these steps. "1.Make a few (3 in my case) bookmarks pointing to a file on your file system (file:// bookmarks) 2.Click on the first bookmark with a middle mouse button." Make 3 bookmarks pointing to the same file? Click where with the middle mouse button? Bookmarks manager? Sidebar? Menu? Bookmarks toolbar?
Here's what I did and got on 20021019 Linux: (1)I typed in a URL of a page on my own system (the mirror of my website at /var/www/index.html, so file:///var/www/index.html) (2)I bookmarked that page (3)I middle-clicked on it in the sidebar What happened was that every single bookmark not in a folder/group was opened in a new tab (I had to spend a good amount of time just closing them all down) (4)After closing all those tabs I exited and restarted Phoenix (5)Middle clicked on the same bookmark again This time, as expected, the page opened in a new tab and that was the only page to open. Fwiw, the same page when bookmarked instead at http://localhost/ did exactly the same thing, despite it being http. I can't quite tell for http://127.0.0.1/ because I had tried something else before then. That something else was to bookmark a page not on my system *after* I had bookmarked the localhost page on my system but before Middle-clicking on the first (local) bookmark. Middle-clicking on the bookmark for localhost then opened up a new tab with that page and none other. I don't know how much to read into this though because I had been messing around with the same pages so much by then...
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021019 Phoenix/0.3 I can't reproduce on Windows XP Pro. Following the original instructions, I only get the single new tab with the local file bookmark I clicked.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021019 Phoenix/0.3 Works for me on Linux. What are your tabbed browsing preferences? Have you tried it with a new profile?
works for me on linux 10/19
This is not an easy bug to recreate, but it can be recreated even with a new profile. (1)Browse to a few sites and bookmark them Now here is the kicker; presumably the last bookmarked url is in the rightmost tab at this point. If you middle click on its [newly created] bookmark in the sidebar it will be opened up in a new tab, no problems. So, instead, to recreate the bug, do the following: (2)close the tab containing the most recently bookmarked url (3)middle click on the bookmark in the sidebar Result: the mouse flickers a bit and tabs are opened up containing every existing bookmark. This seems to be happening with all bookmarks, local or not. But, if you select any bookmark up to the penultimate one (the one second from the bottom), then this behaviour doesn't occur. It also doesn't occur if you leave the tab of the last created bookmark open and middle click on its bookmark. Shutting down and restarting also clears the problem.
ok.. sorry Asa, I try to describe again.. Steps to Reproduce: 1.Make a few (3 in my case) bookmarks pointing to a file on your file system (file:// bookmarks) - I have 3 bookmarks pointing to 3 different directories on my filesystem 2.Click on the first of the 3 bookmarks in your bookmark sidebar with a middle mouse button.
I just downloaded latest nightly build and erased my all my prev. files (including .phoenix directory). Clicking with a middle mouse button on a bookmark in bookmark folder right after starting Phoenix opens 2 tabs - one with about:blank and the 2nd one with the bookmark clicked on.
I can reproduce as per comment #6. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021020 Phoenix/0.3, build 2002102008
I can now confirm the original bug and it appears to be the same as the related bug I discovered. Basically, middle-clicking a recently bookmarked URL opens up every bookmark in a new tab *IF* you first close down the tab of the most recently bookmarked URL. Can someone repeat this in Windows and determine if this is cross-platform or Linux-only? (1)open a new tab, browse to http://www.slashdot.org/ and bookmark it (2)open another new tab, browse to http://www.canada.com/ and bookmark it (3)close tab containing www.canada.com (4)open the booksmarks sidebar if not open already (5)middle-click on canada.com bookmark in side bar Alternatively: (3)close tab containing www.canada.com (4)close tab containing www.slashdot.org (5)middle-click on slashdot.org bookmark in side bar If you browse to all the sites in the same tab, then closing that tab before opening *any* of the newly created bookmarks is sufficient to bring about the bug (this would appear to be what the original reporter did).
it seems to work correctly with 0.3 on Win2k
Thankyou. Confirming as a Linux-only bug.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
yet another steps to reproduce (tried with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021029 Phoenix/0.4) - brand new install (no previous phoenix, no .phoenix directory or bookmarks or whatever..) 1. start Phoenix 2. open Bookmarks sidebar 3. go to whatever page, www.cnn.com - it doesn't matter - and bookmark it 4. click on 'Phoenix project' bookmark in the sidebar with left mouse button 5. click with middle mouse button on another bookmark in the sidebar (so it opens in a new tab) - I clicked on Phoenix extensions 6. close the Phoenix extensions tab (tab #2) 7. repeat step 5 the cnn.com or whatever page you bookmarked is loaded in tab #1 (or no tab - depends on your settings)
Summary: Clicking with middle mouse button on file:// bookmark doesn't work as expected. → Clicking with middle mouse button on bookmark in bookmark sidebar doesn't work as expected.
Michal, Are you still getting this bug? I'm no longer getting it with 20021102 so I'm going to mark it WFM. If you are still getting it just reopen it.
