Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20061212 Minefield/3.0a1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20061212 Minefield/3.0a1

Anchors with href="javascript:(stuff)" don't open properly but instead extract the longest text within quotes in (stuff) and try to open it as a URL.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
If for example I go to 
https://addons.mozilla.org/search.php?q=%s&type=E&app=firefox
and put the mouse over the link "Advanced Options" - the source is 
<a href="javascript:toggle('hide-search-options','show-search-options','inline');show('search-options','inline');">Advanced Options &darr;</a>
- then the status bar shows
http://hide-search-options','show-search-options','inline
and when I click this link Firefox tries to open it as a URL.
