For about a week in the nightly builds of Mozilla these have no longer worked. Also from an external URL reference or a program that is a web search engine I am unable to go to the found URLs. Mozilla opens but goes to the default page only. I have completely uninstalled Mozilla and reinstalled from version 1.7.3 then the current nightly build to confirm this. I have also cleared all of my Temp directories and Caches without a satisfactory result. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. From a previously working Web Shortcut attempt to go to it. 2. 3. Actual Results: Mozilla opens the default Home Page. Expected Results: Mozilla should open the URL
Looks similiar to 266512. Duplicate?
Alan, can you narrow down exactly when this broke?
To get this running satisfactorily again I am going back to 2004102505 after testing each new nightly build.
So it's broken in the October 26 morning builds? If you can tell me when this broke, I may be able to find the chekin that was responsible.
Thats correct. Anything after 2004102505 fails for me.
Darin, this is when you landed the xpcom changes... Could that have affected DDE stuff somehow? Of the relevant checkins, it seems the most likely.... The full checkin list is: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?treeid=default&module=all&branch=HEAD&branchtype=match&dir=&file=&filetype=match&who=&whotype=match&sortby=Date&hours=2&date=explicit&mindate=2004-10-25+05%3A00%3A00&maxdate=2004-10-26+10%3A00%3A00&cvsroot=%2Fcvsroot
With todays build (2004110104) the error loading Mozilla from a saved shortcut URL only ocurrs if an instance of Mozilla is already open on the screen. A new window of Mozilla is opened to the default page and not the saved shortcut URL.

I can't reproduce this with mozilla trunk. I would naturally suspect my app-startup checkins, unless this happened before that.

Reporter, are there any errors in the JS console?
Sorry but what is the JS console??
I have the following ( so I will try and reinstall sthe Sun Java) These were when I had my homepage opened to http://telstra.com/ Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIControllers.removeController]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://navigator/content/navigator.js :: Shutdown :: line 750" data: no] Error: Selector expected.

Ri-Installing of Sun Java jre-1_5_0-windows-i586.exe said that it was already there.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
CTho, did you actually reproduce this? Steps to reproduce, please?
I can reproduce this, bsmedberg. Incoming ICQ links don't work when passed to Mozilla, nor do X-Chat (for windows) links. All they do is open a new window (with whatever settings you have; in my case that's to open the homepage).
Yes, what stephend said. I think bug 267313 is really a dupe of this bug rather than a dependency.
This works in my self-compiled Mozilla from yesterday on win2k and Xchat. Could be an installer/package issue (missing/wrong registry-keys) ?
I think this must be some sort of installer issue. I cannot reproduce this with downloaded Windows ZIP builds, I will try the installer shortly.
Changing my DDE message from "%1",,-1,0,,,, to "%1" solved the issue for me.
I have worked out further info on this Bug. If I download and install the latest version from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/nightly/latest-1.7/ which is dated 03-Nov-2004 15:18 the error I am still seeing on the Latest Nightly Builds (currently 2004110505) does not happen. So I am guessing it is an error in the way that the Nightly Builds are packaged compared to the way that the ones in the latest-1.7 directory are packaged.
That means only that the old 1.7 branch is different
> That means only that the old 1.7 branch is different If it is not showing the error in that branch then it is correct whereas the Latest directory branch has an error. Or is the version in the 1.7 branch much older than the date implies?
Alan, most of the 1.7 branch is seven months old. Security and crash fixes have been going into the branch, but primary development has been taking place on the trunk.
I am using the build 2004110606 today and have isolated the fault some more to shortcuts that are in the form of http:// as different from https:// So with shortcut to a "Secure" http site Mozilla works fine but to an "Unsecure" http site Mozilla fails , and just opens another Default page. (Also I am not sure if its related but in all this Mozilla is opening a new Window, not changing the page in the existing open Mozilla Window)
Windows uses separate settings for http vs. https URLs.
So aryou say that the error is in Mozilla's handling of these two different URL types? Or is it a Windows OS error?
See comment 22 - something that used to work stopped working - I expect it's a change in Mozilla's behavior somewhere, rather than Windows. If you go open windows explorer, choose Tools->Folder Options, File Types, scroll down to "(NONE) URL:Hyper Text Transfer Protocol", click Advanced, select open, click Edit, and compare the settings there to the settings for HTTPS, I expect something will be different.
Is there a way to track progress on the resolution of this problem. I am still checking each new nightly build but having to revert to the version 2004102505 as each new build still fails for me.
All progress on the bug should be noted in the form of added comments and/or attached patches. Until the status is changed to "resolved fixed", the bug is not fixed.
*** Bug 267110 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I had a bug that was a duplicate to this one and somebody said that builds up to the 30th were not displaying the problem since i see on this discussion that the problem started on the 26th I think that we should check this again. See bug 267110
I have just tried this out again with the nightly build for the 29th and confirm that the error is definately present in it. As I recollect I have already stepped back through the versions untill I found that the one for the 25th did not have a problem with this bug. I will work back more as I have time unless someone else wants to confirm this again before I do.
I have just noticed that this problem of Mozella only opening to the default page also will happen if any componant of Mozilla appart from the QuickStartUp is open. I have had just the Download Manager open (No Mozilla Browser Windows open) and trying to open to a saved URL opens up only to the selected Default page in Mozilla. To further test I have also download and tested with a Stub Install as well as the complete download install. Both of these currently fail
Severity: normal → major
To reproduce this, are you attempting to load the external link with Mozilla already running? also.. Is the external link loaded properly if Mozilla has to be launched by the system call from the external link. If so, bug 266313 is a dupe of this.
Likely, but not proven yet, is that Darin's changes for bug 262218 may have caused/exposed this.
Darin, can you look at this?
Yes, I'm updating my windows tree at the moment...
I tried to reproduce with v1.8a4 and v1.8a5 (with an http url shortcut, on W98SE): I saw the bug ... then couldn't reproduce :-/ Detailed steps needed !
Patch from bug 267313 should fix this.
