Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48500] New: mod_mbox mishandles right-click to open msg in new tab
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2010 06:20:22 GMT

           Summary: mod_mbox mishandles right-click to open msg in new tab
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_mbox

(I have not tested this with trunk httpd, only the httpd running on
right now.)

To reproduce, visit

and right-click on one of the messages (picking one at random below) to
open it in a new tab:

(One of Mark Mielke's messages in the "Re: Subversion in 2010" thread.)

The message is displayed in a horribly broken way in the browser.  At
the top, the browser shows a warning bar that says "This XML file does
not appear to have any style information associated with it. The
document tree is shown below.".  Below that, it... shows the document
tree, complete with angle brackets and attributes and everything.  The
body of the message is visible, sort of, but this is surely not the
intended UI :-).

Apparently, the javascript only overrides "onclick", but does not
override "right click".  So a regular click would be handled properly,
but a right click to open a new window is not -- it does not execute the
JavaScript.  Thus the page defaults to the raw href, which is pretty
useless without a style sheet.

I did this in Firefox 3.5.6, by the way, but I doubt the browser version
