Description

19 years ago
Build ID: 1999110208
Platform: Windows 98 (Win32 specific bug!)

To reproduce:
- Launch IE
- Add some bookmarks
- Launch the Mozilla browser
- From the Bookmarks menu, select Imported IE Favorites | <bookmark>
- In the Sidebar, show the Bookmarks
- Double-click the Imported IE Favorites folder to display its contents
- Double-click an IE Favorite to display it

Result: The browser content pane says (for example): "[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.foo.com"

Expected result: The site itself is displayed

Note that this does work as expected when selecting from the Bookmarks menu
itself.

I probably need to update the JavaScript for the bookmarks panel.

I don't see a fix in the 1999122001 M12 branch build. I'll check with a M13
build later on in the week.

Largely works in the M13 builds. I am a mite concerned about some default IE
bookmark items that aren't gracefully handled by Mozilla (such as Windows
shortcuts). Verifying as fixed.
