User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910

Under windows (tested on Windows 2000):

mozilla -editor C:\some_folder\some_file.html

results in error. Error says: cannot open
/C:/some_folder/some_file.html

This means that path is changed to unix directory tree style.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.



Expected Results:  
Should have tried to open C:\some_folder\some_file.html
the commandline expects an URL
" -edit <url>              Start with editor."

c:\somefolder\file.html is not a URL, file:///c:/somefilder/file.html is one

daniel@glazman.org: this poses a serious problem for windows integration where
there's an option to right click a file and select edit.
timeless: I was saying "absolutely" because I misread the status of this bug and
thought it was closed "WFM". I see it WFM on my WinXP box but I have no access
to a Win2K box.
I am therefore reopening the bug until somebody can test it under Win2k.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
