User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050206 Firefox/1.0 (Debian package 1.0+dfsg.1-5) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050206 Firefox/1.0 (Debian package 1.0+dfsg.1-5) Suppose that I have a page loaded on a tab. If i have a mail adress in the clipboard (ex: email@example.com) and try to paste it in the middle of the web page (not in a form or so), i receive this security warning : "You are about to log into the site "free.fr" with the username "pifi" but the web site does not require authentification. This may be an attempt to trick you. Is "free.fr" the site you want to visit ? Yes/no Although this message can be usefull, but a little strange in the case of an email adress, it's not the bug itself. If a choose 'No', the "new" page (ex, free.fr) doesn't load, but its eventual logo shows up in the tab, at the right of my actual webpage. I choose free.fr because it does have a tab logo image, instead of the classic white paper sheet image. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Put an email adress in the X clipboard. Try firstname.lastname@example.org because hotmail has a logo 2. Click on the middle wheel of the mouse to try to paste the adress on a lambda webpage (but not in a form, in the very page itself) 3. Click 'No' to the security popup Actual Results: I keep the old web page where I was before pasting, the title remains the same but the little tab image changed to the new site's one. Expected Results: It should have left the old image tab logo.
You get that behavior because pasting into a tab by default navigates to the site in the clipboard, and since the email address is in the clipboard, it gives you the warning. As for the favicon, this likely has the same root cause as bug 230016. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 230016 ***
