Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 On some boards I post Edonkey/Emule links. With the new feature (Advanced Hashsystem in URL Link) some of the links get very long. If the Link is longer than 2048 Chars Firefox does nothing after clicking on the link. If the link is shorter Firefox launched Edonkey/Emule. So it seams that the longer the URL is the worser Firefox can handle it.
Sourround the submited URL with the "<a href" tag and see yourself.
Might it be that this is (also?) partly a Windows problem? If i enter a normal http URL with >=2048 chars, it works.
Very long URI's have been working in nightlies and official releases because people have been able to use huge bookmarklets and data URI's. Example: Type into the location bar 'data:text/html,<a href="data:text/plain,<<paste url from bugreport>>">test</a>' That loads (which is longer than the original URL) as well as the link inside the page. Perhaps there is an issue with sending a very long URI to other protocols (specifically the ed2k protocol). If you're still noticing the issue, you can file a new bug stating that problem.
