Closed Bug 692060 Opened 8 years ago Closed 8 years ago
Does anyone know *why* a middle click at a random spot in the page navigates to that URL? I understand that middle-click is supposed to paste, but I never understood or liked the navigation feature. In any case, I fully agree that we ought to apply the "unsafe link protection" to this case. cc'ing the relevant people from bug 656433. Moderate because you'd have to combine this with other attacks (unrestricted clipboard writing) in order to do anything directly.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Middle-click to navigate is an old feature that's been around forever. Adding the location bar protections (don't inherit principal) is already on file as bug 674161. I thought there was an existing bug on the chrome-privileged page variant, but I don't know it offhand.
