User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Please allow entering URLs, both into the address bar and via middle-click on the main window area, that are in RFC1738 encoding. E.g., <URL:http://whatever>, and handle unwrapping wrapped URLs of that form. If a major browser, such as Firefox, supported this, it might encourage people to start actually encoding their URLs that way on Usenet and in email. :-) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Get such an encoded URL on the clipboard 2. Middle-click in the main window 3. Actual Results: It treats it like any other non-URL text Expected Results: Extract the URL from the pasted text, fix any line wrapping, process the URL.
Stripping line breaks is bug 23485 and should apply even to URLs without <> or <URL:>.
