On linux system they called *.desktop. On OS X they called *.webloc. On Windows system they called *.url. When you use fileserver (samba for example) for thre os you can see three type of urls in filesystem, problem is - you can't open each other in different os, by double clicking or by dragging to browser window! Reproducible: Always
Are you asking that Firefox support on each OS the other OS's method for storing urls in a file?
yes, for reading\parsing files...
for example when i open .desktop files from windows hosts, i got UTF-8 url encoded (on russian) and unable to read him... that confused...
Summary: Firefox produce incompatible urls → Support opening url files (.url, .desktop, .webloc) on all OS's
I support this enhancement, but please prioritize handling Windows .url files in Mac FF. Currently, copied .url files open when double-clicked by default in Safari, but are not parsed correctly by FF. If FF handled them, I could set the opening app to FF.
