Send Page As Link not working in 1.6 alpha build 4

I can't get the "send page as link" to work in 1.6 alpha build 4. The menu shows OK, but nothing happens when I select that option. It should launch Outlook Express. "%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" is the information in configure mail.

The mail.kmm file exists and other options in the menu seem to work.

@ Jujuland

I am sorry, but I don't think I understand the whole smiley concept.

Am I the only one with the problem or is the problem with build 4?

Thanks, I will do a fresh install and see if it is something with my profile.

Now I really don't understand what is going on. I made a new folder and used 7z load KM 1.6 alpha build 4. I put an empty profile.ini and started KM. I made no changes at all - no macros, no new skin - and tried to get "Send Page as a link" to work. It did nothing.

I have a KM 1.1.6, a KM 1.5.3, and a KM 1.5.4 all on this computer. The Send page as a link works for all those. It is only the 1.6 alpha build 4 versions which do not work.

Any ideas?

it's not prompting to register protocols like mailto: on first application run/new profile.

it's much more serious than just mail and appears to be related to gecko implementation in kmeleon/missing service
you probably should report that bug:
fails to prompt on registering new protocol handlers

for now, you can fix it by opening the profile prefs.js in notepad and append this line: (make sure the browser is closed)
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.warn-external.mailto", false);

I added the line to prefs.js and that fixed the problem. It does not ask now to confirm the launch of OE but OE is launched. I will try to make a bug report.

The one I am using is ..

K-Meleon 1.6.0a3 (Build 4, 2010-03-01, Gecko 1.9.1) -- Download


Says it is build 4, but the number is 0a3. Is it three or four?

@ desga2

It now opens OE and lets me send the mail with the URL. This is after I added the line
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.warn-external.mailto", false);
to my prefs.js. I just no longer get the intermediate step where I am asked if I want to launch OE.

I think the feature of asking if you want to open an external program is secure and important, but as for other prefs, if you answer Yes, the pref ought to be changed to true.

But it's probably a lack of K-Meleon. Previously version were build with the pref set to Yes (defaults\pref\kmeneon.js).

I think it's a bug, and this is the real reason.
