I happily used this to directly jump to editing this entry with web2ldap. This was very handy but does not seem to be supported anymore. :-( Unfortunately the old docs are gone (former location was http://developer.netscape.com/docs/manuals/communicator/ldap45.htm#improved-html-display just in case somebody has a copy of that). I have an web2ldap FAQ entry regarding this here: http://www.web2ldap.de/faq.html I'd be glad if this feature would be reimplemented. Preferrably by merging the complete LDAP URL describing this entry with the URL defined in customDisplayUrl. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Wading through LDAP-related bugs this enhancement also might be related to the stuff around network.protocol-handler.* So how about defining something like: user_pref("network.protocol-handler.rewriteurl.ldap", "http://localhost:1760/web2ldap?%u") There are similar feature requests for chasing ISBN numbers etc. Bug 269917 – Support for ISBN URN Scheme (RFC3187) Also integrating web2ldap (or another web-based LDAP client) is an elegant work-around for these feature requests: Bug 86405 – Make LDAP addressbooks editable
