The domain highlighting feature added as part of bug 451833 fails to properly highlight the entire IPv6 address; it stops after the first colon.

Reproducible: Always

There's an example URL in the URL field, it might not work for you as it's a local IPv6 address, but it demonstrates the problem fine.

This uses (.+?) for the host instead of ([^\/:]+), which caused this bug by excluding the colon. Since question mark makes .+ nongreedy, (?::\d+)?(?:\/|$) is needed to ensure that the host is followed by an optional port and a slash or the end of the string.

Verified it works as expected.
Comment 6 Asa Dotzler [:asa] 2011-05-31 19:12:50 PDT
In the failure case, was the whole domain "graytext" or was it all "black text"?
Comment 7 Will Roberts [:bws42] 2011-05-31 19:39:37 PDT
In the failure case the address was only black to the first colon. So given an address like dead:beef:1234::1 dead was black and the rest was not.
