Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060214 Camino/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060214 Camino/1.0

Pressing ⌘↓ in the bookmark manager opens the currently selected bookmark in a new window/tab. Double-clicking the same bookmark, however, opens it in the same window/tab. In Finder, double-clicking and ⌘↓ always give identical results. This should be consistent in Camino, too. Note that pressing ⌘↓ for a selected folder in about:bookmarks opens it in the same window, as expected.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the bookmarks manager (about:bookmarks).
2. Select a bookmark.
3. Press ⌘↓.

Actual Results:  
Camino opens the selected bookmark in a new window/tab.

Expected Results:  
Pressing ⌘↓ for a selected bookmark opens it in the same window, like it does when double-clicking the same bookmark.
Exception: Double-clicking or pressing ⌘↓ for a group of selected bookmarks (or bookmark folders) should open all of them in new windows, just like it works for folders in Finder.

⌘↓ equals Cmd-down
Sorry for the mess. :|
See also bug 285182, which this could probably be duped to.

Simon, is this different enough from bug 285182 to stay its own bug?
Yeah, this is another one of the cases where we just detect whether the command key is down for "open in new tab/window".
Confirming on the assumption that Wevah's "yeah" was in response to my previous question; if not, please dupe to the depends.
