User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20111104 Red Hat/3.6-3.el5_7 Firefox/3.6.24 Build ID: 20111104080228 Steps to reproduce: I RECEIVED an email message that contains this line of text: svn+ssh://example.com/arf/arf To confirm this bug, I downloaded and installed the latest thunderbird, which says it is 9.0.1. (Check for updates says "Thunderbird is up to date".) My computer is Red Hat Enterprise 5 Linux. Actual results: When I read the message, I get a popup that says "An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for Gecko. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly." I clicked on details, and it says: Bad key or directory name: "/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/svn+ssh/command": `+' is an invalid character in key/directory names Bad key or directory name: "/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/svn+ssh/command": `+' is an invalid character in key/directory names In fact, I reduced this to an example. I actually am on a mailing list where there was discussion about an svn+ssh URL, and there were ~15 messages that each caused this error when I clicked on them. Initially, I was concerned that this was a security exploit, but on closer examination, I see that there is not really a problem with my configuration -- just a misleading error message. Expected results: Message content sent by somebody else should never cause a configuration error. svn+ssh://hostname/directoryname is a perfectly valid string to pass in an email message; if thunderbird does not recognize svn+ssh, it should quietly ignore it instead of creating a popup.
