Description

16 years ago
Originally in bug 33282, this is a depends on that bug, which is no a much more
general discussion about getting external helper apps schemes to work in Linux.

There are probably a lot of aspects of telnet: URL security in that bug that
need to be dug out at some point in the future.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:
clicking on the URL would bring up a telnet session of some kind.

OBSERVED BEHAVIOR:
clicking on the URL returns "telnet is not a registered protocol."

and, why isn't this a dup of 33282?
Depends on: 33282

The security issues are essentially the same as launching a mime helper app. You
might look at bug 125505 which has a partial approach to exiting the mozilla
environment safely.

1- to catch dupes
2- because it is a depends.
3- because if I have to test areas that are not apparently the same, it is
easier to have each behavior described in a separate bug. That allows people to
focus on implementing the scheme->application mapping in that bug, and keep the
telnet-only drift in this bug.

Doug: why is this won't fix, if it is a depends on a bug that is assigned?
Reopening.  This is the bug for implementing a proper helper script or whatever
is needed for telnet; see last comments on bug 33282

Moz 1.6 is out and still no way for a normal user (non programmer) to enable
telnet:// links.  

The workaround is to use mozex

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113

Thanks

The workaround does not work if you are trying to deploy firefox to multiple PCs
and users automatically. Will this ever "just work" on a Linux box?

This still doesn't work on Firefox 1.5. Is there any activity on this bug?
