From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; N; Linux 2.2.14 i586; en-US) Mozilla/m14 BuildID: 2000030316 When right clicking on an ftp:// link and selecting open in new window the window opens without loading the ftp:// link. The link is not present in the location field in the new window either. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Got to a web page with links to ftp sites. 2. Right click the ftp link 3. Select open link in new window Actual Results: New window opens without loading the ftp site. The url to the ftp site is not placed in the location field. Expected Results: The new window should load the ftp site when opened. The url to the ftp site should be placed in the location field. This is the link where I first discovered the problem: http://shelob.ce.ttu.edu/daves/lpfaq/faq-10.html There is a link to an ftp site under availability for C2Latex.
How exactly were you using 2000030316 when the bug was filed on 2000-03-14? The reason this is failing is that the link in the page is to: ftp://omnigate.clarkson.edu:/pub/tex/tex-programs/c2latex Note the extra colon without a port number. FTP Open In New Window works with non-odd links. However, NS 4.72 does cope with this form of URL, so this is a [4.xP] bug. This problem also occurs for HTTP URLs. Confirming, rewriting title, moving to Networking. Gerv

Gagan: Assign the bug to me if you want, please review the patch.
Jud, can you review this?
r=valeski. what's the [4.xP] notation?
fix checked in.
qa to me. VERIFIED: Mozilla 0.9 Linux and Win32. The submitted URL points to a server that is down, but I also tested the general format: ftp://ftp.netscape.com:/ To make sure we just ignore the colon and use the well-known port.
