The man ('MAT' person) needs to look more at what was posted and less at who posted it.

Just giving again a THANKS to YOU for doing the 'Pulls' needed to FIX the (Menu) 'HELP' URLs
related to RT's Browsers here. It is GOOD to 'head off' further complications related to 'MAT' person.

Added Later: RT observed (below) of 'MAT' person --> "(He is) better (seen) using binoculars"
Okay, I did LOL on this above from RT. :)

Added Later: VistaLover observed (below) of 'MAT' person --> "(He) wants your arm and shoulder too,"
GOOD that my HEAD is attached ... somewhere! ;)

... I'm sorry to say this (thus slightly disagreeing with you), but whatever "one" (as in an XP fork maintainer ;) ) does will never be sufficient to keep Matt A. Tobin at bay or make him revisit his opinions/change his behaviour towards the XP forks people... Just consider that @Feodor2 has taken the steps to fully rebrand his forks, yet he's still being treated as trash by the Tobin person :angry:; don't be fooled, he's the kind of people that want your arm and shoulder too, when you're simply extending your hand to them... :P

As I do. There's no point in trying to respond to that vitriolic nonsense (now, the point of separating branding and redirecting help/support links to this forum thread instead of his site is a fair point and makes sense. What isn't fair is his seemingly compulsive need to viciously berate anyone who dares modify and use his product (or a derivative thereof) on an OS he doesn't support.

Just let him do whatever he does, filter out whatever information is actually useful from that which is intended to insult or criticize, and move on.

Some people just don't like to play fair.

Hi to all.

Bug in Firefox allows local files to be stolen:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1560291

Test:

Type in the address bar:

file:///c:/

It's important to be precise here. The bug isn't that typing file:///c:/ in the address bar shows your C: drive - that's what it's supposed to do.

The bug is that an HTML document in C:\ can access any other file on the C: drive. This isn't easy to fix though, as Mozilla explains:

Quote

Chrome has a very restrictive file:// security policy: every single file is a different origin. This unfortunately breaks a lot of use cases (e.g. HTML documentation). We have a security policy where a file can only access things in the same directory or subdirectories. This works fine as long as you don't dump unrelated things in the same directory... It's hard to restrict the thing you're concerned about with here without breaking a huge number of legitimate things people depend on. :(

A fix would probably involve treating certain locations as special cases: drive root directories, "C:\Program Files," the desktop, etc., which are likely to contain "unrelated things." (Mac/Linux would have different exceptions, of course.) Probably along with a new set of prefs so users could control it on a spectrum from Chrome-tight to "anything goes."

Unfortunately it would take a much better programmer than I to make a change like this. Probably best to just wait and see what Mozilla and/or MCP come up with. In the meantime, just avoid saving Web pages or other HTML documents to the desktop or similar "high-level" directories. Even if you use your browser's or email client's default "downloads" directory, all anyone will be able to steal is your other downloads.

A misbehaving web page:

http://xkctk.hangzhou.gov.cn/yhdl/

The last input field is for verification code that is displayed in the right. Despite how correct your input is, it will mark you a wrong cross and refresh the image, making you fail to log in. IE8 has the same problem. But on my android phone's firefox mobile the page behaves normal.

I got no problem here. Did you choose "Firefox compatibility" in preferences?

It was not my intention to enter here in too specific details.

So it's better to integrate your information to be as accurate as you wrote.;)

Attention must also be paid to SVG files.
