4. Wait for the configured webbrowser to open.

Actual Results:  The browser opens with the URL "" (with a missing trailing slash "/") and returns a "404" error.

Expected Results:  The entire URL (including the "/" should have been passed). "".

Additional info:

You can see that the entire URL is not selected when the mouse hovers over the URL and the trailing slash is not underlined like the rest of the URL.  Here is an ASCII "screenshot":

Any chance of an update?

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 3 Alex Lancaster 2007-01-24 01:09:50 UTC
This is fixed on FC-6 in gnome-terminal-2.16.0-2.fc6.  According to it was fixed sometime in the
gnome-terminal-2.15.x series.
