URLs in hotlinks are "hot".
Is this a new "feature"?
If so, thinking it is wrong.

Bug 1363651 http://detectportal.firefox.com/ is hammering our firewalls

Code: Select all
[url=https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1363651]
Bug 1363651 http://detectportal.firefox.com/ is hammering our firewalls
[/url]


Currently, the (what IMO should be a textual item) http://detectportal.firefox.com, in that hotlink, becomes its own "hotlink". So, "Bug 1363651" points to the bug, & "http://detectportal.firefox.com" points to detectportal.firefox.com.

I'd think that is not desired.


Intended result (& purposely broken the "textual" http: link), Bug 1363651 http:// detectportal.firefox.com/ is hammering our firewalls

Appears this is not new.
(At least on a few different phpBB boards all display this same "fault".)

Can't believe I hadn't run into this before.

*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

Someone might want to change the title to point out this is from Microsoft and is important.
