I don't know that we ship gnome-vfs (or whether we should ship it).

And when this gets better integrated with the browser if it makes sense.

But it sure sounds like an enhancement to me that waits until B3 at least.

Replying to jg:

I don't know that we ship gnome-vfs (or whether we should ship it).

Last I checked, gnome-vfs is a pig that we shouldn't even think about shipping. We'll have to consider a different approach to opening links from Abi, or removing that functionality, particularly since it makes a lot less sense when we're using the embedded abi version.

We are shipping gnome-vfs now, need to verify if this is fixed.

Reassigning to John Fuhrer for verification.

In the latest versions of write (build 535+), the hyperlink option just doesn't work, regardless of whether or not I selectthe text.

Finally got the darn hyperlink option to work. It still doesn't open Browse when I click the link, though. My cursor switches to the link cursor properly, but clicking does nothing.

Reassinging back to Kim.
