From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-SGI_XFS_1.0 i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1) Gecko/20010608 BuildID: 2001060810 If I launch a local xterm and then highlight some url, middle clicking in mozilla causes the URL to be fetched. That's good. If I launch an xterm from a remote computer and then highlight some url, middle clicking does not cause anything noticeable to happen. This is bad. It also doesn't work for a remote emacs, etc. This buggy behavior is consistent with the behavior I got from the .7 release that came with Redhat 7.1 by default (I upgraded to a new rpm before filing this bug). This does not happen with Netscape 4.76 however. It likes text from local or remote xterms. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch an xterm from a remote machine onto a local machine 2. Type a URL and then highlight it 3. Middle click on a Mozzila window and nothing will happen 4. Perform these same steps with a local xterm and it will fetch the URL. Actual Results: Nothing happens. :( Expected Results: Mozzilla should fetch the page in the x cut buffer no matter if it is from a local application or a remote one The remote machine is running an old version of Redhat, maybe Redhat 6.1 or 6.2 The local machine is running a pretty vanilla server installation of Redhat 7.1
