when a url is called using the browser syntax from with a xul/chrome, kmeleon fails to connect to the address and opens an empty window. affects web urls and local calls.
affects extensions like gspace, google sidebar, km sms etc any extension which relies on chrome to resolve and connect a url . could have other implications on XUL performance
tests for local and web addresses, compare performance with 1.5.x, 1.1.x and 1.6 where previous versions are able to resolve the urls, 1.6 fails.
the tests above will create 2 menu entries under tools>
test xul-web url
test xul-local url
this bug affects all 1.6 releases
be advised: for the local url test, the test page (testpage.htm) should be in english default installation path c:\program filesk-meleontestpage.htm
create temporary path where necessary
