The truncation occurs at the question mark. Many ASP or other actively-created pages contain a question mark as the delimiter for the page-specific data in the URL. I am using Eudora 6.2. I have no other mail program to try it on. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a page with a '?' in its URL, such as http://www.informationweek.com/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=170700839 2. Use File/Send Link ... to create an email message with the URL of the page. Actual Results: The URL in the message is truncated to http://www.informationweek.com/showArticle.jhtml Expected Results: Put the entire URL into the message. If this turns out to be a problem in Eudora and not Firefox, please let me know at email@example.com so I can inform Qualcomm. Sorry I have no way to test othe mailers. I can work around this by Copying the URL to the clipboard, then using Send Link to create a message, then replacing the short URL with the Copied one. If I remember to check for a question mark.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050907 Firefox/1.6a1 Works for me in trunk using Thunderbird. Could you test this using the latest builds of Firefox? If you're still seeing this then it's probably an issue with Eudora. http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/

After tolerating this INCREDIBLY ANNOYING lack of basic functionality for a long time I am very disapointed to see this bug with an unconfirmed status. I thought I had looked up bugzilla before and seen a bug listed for this. I assumed it was going to be fixed. I understand Eudora users are not the majority of your users but this should be fixed. If properly configured Eudora is one of the most secure and effective email clients out there. People should be encouraged to use Eudora and Firefox to improve the security of their net experience. Please fix this bug.
reporter (Michael), to check if this is an Eudora problem, open IE (or another browser) and use its Send Link function
(In reply to comment #4) > reporter (Michael), to check if this is an Eudora problem, open IE (or another > browser) and use its Send Link function Confirmed: this is a Firefox-only problem. If IE can do this, why can't Firefox? If IE can do this, it's *not* a Eudora problem.
This behavior disappeared with the latest version of FireFox. Still unknown where the bug was, but probably was FireFox. Thanks.

Well it hasn't disappeared for me and I have the latest version. Do I now have to open a new bug?
pd, which version are you using?

At present I am using Eudora version 220.127.116.11 with Firefox 18.104.22.168 I've had this problem with several different versions of Eudora. The issue *still* remains (I just re-tested it). Perhaps it might help to look at the SendStory extension since this seems to be able to send a full URL without problems: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/489/ The other possibility is that I have Eudora configured for extra security. Most people probably leave it configured as default. To do this is to expose oneself to all the Internet Explorer security nightmares since according to Tools -> Options -> Viewing Mail -> "Use Microsoft's viewer", Eudora uses Internet Exploder by default. I have this disabled and a few other 'features' disabled that force Eudora into an old-style plain-text-only scenario.
OK. So I looked at this code and it's not a problem in our code. We're sending the fully encoded URI to the OS, so it's in what Eudora decides to do with that URI that's the problem.

Any idea why this is not a problem in Internet Exploder then? Perhaps IE is using a different method/API call to achieve the same thing? Maybe Fx could use this as well? Otherwise time to hassle Qualcomm I suppose.
