In which case it will cause the browser to consume more cpu, memory, along with making the browser unable to close until you satisfy all dialogs that pop up saying 'document cannot be found' or some where along those lines. The program which i used to spawn firefox was mIRC by double clicking said URL. It does however not have an effect if you actually cut and paste the URL into the address bar. It may be a 'feature' as it would, to a select few, be usefull to spawn multiple tabs at once, but for the majority it's pretty useless, and as you can see, it can be abused; DoS, Spam type Popups even.. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Pasted said URL above in to mIRC 2.Double clicked it to spawn Firefox 3. Actual Results: Several tabs were opened. Expected Results: The browser should not interperate | as an indicator to open a new tab.
