User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:23.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/23.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20130709190440 Steps to reproduce: Type a quoted url in as a message in the Chat - eg : <http://www.sgi.com/> Ref: <http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#page-51> <http://www.w3.org/Addressing/rfc1738.txt> Actual results: The link to 'http://www.sgi.com/>' is placed on the text 'http://www.sgi.com/>' and a semi-colon is added that wasn't entered. ie, I get the equivalent of this html : <<a href="http://www.sgi.com/>">http://www.sgi.com/></a>; Expected results: It should have added text '<http://www.sgi.com/>' (ie not add a semi-colon) and link only the text 'http://www.sgi.com/' (ie not also link the final '>'). The actual URL should also only be http://www.sgi.com. I expected the equivalent of this html : <<a href="http://www.sgi.com/">http://www.sgi.com/</a>>
I noticed that, when other people enter '<http://www.sgi.com/>' the text is also rendered with an extra semi-colon and linked wrongly...so I conclude it is a rendering issue, not a text input issue.
Summary: chat:quoted URL link includes close quote and adds a semi-colon → quoted URL link includes close quote and adds a semi-colon
We've had an Instantbird bug filed for this for a while: https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1413 Unfortunately it doesn't fully seem clear what the issue is here and what should be fixed. (I can't tell if it's a bug in the toolkit code we're using or in our code or both.)
