For example. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/index.html: would be a complete URL with a colon at the end and the link will be the same, which will generate an error. The same is true for combinations of symbols: ",:", "::" etc. This is not true, if there's no file after the host name - http://bugzilla.mozilla.org: will generate a correct link to http://bugzilla.mozilla.org. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Send a message containing a URL with a file name and a colon right after it (e-mail, news) 2. When message arrived - check where the link points to - to just the URL or to the URL with the colon. Actual Results: The link points to URL with colon. Expected Results: The link should point to the URL only, colon should remain a part of plain text in the message.
Taking a stab at a better component for this.

Comment on attachment 572600 [details] [diff] [review] unbittrotted patch and tested Yes, we should do it, exactly like that. r=BenB
Note that we wouldn't catch skype: or similar anymore as a URL, but I don't see any point in a URL like that, esp. in a recognizer (get the catch common cases, not edge cases). This example is purely theoretic, I don't know any concrete URL like that, and I agree the usecase mentioned in this bug is more important. I am just recording this for completeness, that we considered and rejected this edge case.
