User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050321 Firefox/1.0.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050321 Firefox/1.0.2

Although bug 69114 is marked as "resolved fixed" (and I can't reopen it), at
least Firefox 1.0.2 German still (or again) has this bug.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Manually add Firefox as the default handler of .url files (since it did not
do this itself).
2. double-click on a .url file that was created with IE (or Opera?)
3. Firefox shows the content, for instance:
[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.andernacherprinz.de/prokla.jpg

Actual Results:  
Well, Firefox showed this:
[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.andernacherprinz.de/prokla.jpg

Expected Results:  
It should show the image (prokla.jpg) instead.

Just reopen bug 69114 (and actually fix it) ...
Always test a bug with a recent trunk build before you open a bug based on a bug
in an old branch build.

1.0.2 is 1.0 + security fixes (but not with additional fixes that went into the
trunk)
