Had roamed around on web and clicked a "mailto" link so the mail-composer was opened. Then clicked on the browser window to activate it - right-clicked in it and selected "view source". A new mailcomposer window with the address filled in for the one i was writing to opened instead of what i expected (namely the source of the webpage i was on) Seems the page has to be reloaded to view the source i want. And when i clicked back-button, the copy of the mail-compose window again popped up. Also worth mentioning is the fact that a "view page source" NEVER presents the source of the page currently downloaded, but instead downloads the page again from web and then presents it in the source-view window. This means that the source i browse can contain changes if the page was altered in the meantime. (Very often the case with various dynamically loading pages). I'd expect the source to show me what's currently in the browser window - not something else. And I'm on PPP - if i disconnect i can't browse source at all - i just get an error message stating url "could not be found - check the name and try again" :(
email@example.com - we need your Build ID please :-) Also, it would be great if you could use Bugzilla Helper http://www.mozilla.org/quality/help/bug-form.html to report bugs. The following actions: Load a page. Click a "mailto:" link Bring focus back to browser Context Menu | View Source Does the Right Thing for me on 20000324 Win95 (apart from the fact View Source is broken for me; but that's another issue). Are these actions what you mean? Gerv
I think the description is pretty clear. Build was 0323. But as they say - i'm outta here. Setting this invalid and wishing the developers good luck.
