js-errors when trying to Compose E-Mail to Attendees from Sunbird


(Calendar :: Sunbird Only, defect)

Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: giermann, Assigned: giermann)



(Keywords: regression)


(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

Attendees in Sunbird's event show the ability to Compose E-Mail in context menu, but this does not work and produces an error in Javascript console:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x804b000a [nsIIOService.newURI]"  nsresult: "0x804b000a (<unknown>)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://calendar/content/calUtils.js :: sendMailTo :: line 1736"  data: no]
The decision, whether to remove these menu items or to add the checkbox "Send mail invitations" (like in Lightning) has to be done by UI-Team...

If I remember correctly this used to work. Could you narrow down the regression range?

Stefan, thanks for doing most of the work!

This one is quite obvious.
Since Mickey currently does no reviews, I chose Daniel...

We are only reaching this branch if we are in Sunbird and want to call the systems mailto: protocol handler. In this case a valid recipient is required. In my opinion we need to exit this branch early if no recipient is specified - as it was before the checkin from bug 388018.

From a quick test it seems that something like "mailto:?subject=test" or even "mailto:" also works. This means uriString must be initialized to "mailto:". If a recipient is passed it should be added.
