xmlterm does not open window when clicking on an telnet link. At some point in time this was working. The reason seems to be a change in the nsIContentHandler interface.
Created attachment 43170 [details] [diff] [review] This patch to xmlterm-service.js seems to correct the problem
With the patch the xmlterm window opens, however there are currently other problems (missing prompt) with xmlterm preventing me from looking further into this. What is the telnet handler supposed to do? Does it really open a telnet session or does it just open the xmlterm window to allow you to type the telnet command yourself?
The xmlterm DLL is not getting built because of changes in the Mozilla build set-up. The line "FORCE_STATIC_LIB = 1" in xmlterm/base/Makefile.in needs to removed to make it build. I will check in this change (and also the patch to xmlterm-service.js) when the tree reopens. xmlterm does not actually implement the telnet protocol. It simply opens up a shell window.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
If protozilla makes it into the tree you should consider dropping the telnet handler in xmlterm to avoid conflicts/let the better support win.

Resolution: --- → FIXED
Fix checked in. xmlterm now works with the trunk. Also, xmlterm no longer handles the telnet protocol (to avoid conflicts with protozilla etc.)
