Description Muhammad Bashir Al-Noimi 2018-08-16 04:26:22 UTC
Whenever I use external link for getting data from LO stop responding after showing "Import Option" dialog.

Use this link as a test:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sheet -> Link to External Data
2. Input a URL in "URL of External Data Source" then click "Enter" keyboard button
3. After showing "Import Option" dialog I click "OK"
4. "OK" button of "Eternal Data" dialog no longer enabled!

Actual Results:
"OK" button of "Eternal Data" dialog disabled!

Expected Results:
"OK" button of "Eternal Data" dialog enabled

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
This bug occurred after updating LO to the new release. Earlier versions of LO work fine.

Same for me, as well with local HTML files.

External data will be imported in LO but not anymore in younger versions.

Thanks for reporting the issue.
This is a dupe of bug 119141 and it's already fixed in all branches.

Guys, Do you know the date of next release?

This bug is very annoying.
Comment 5 Muhammad Bashir Al-Noimi 2018-09-03 16:42:21 UTC
I read the plan

I shocked when I discovered that the next release will be in "Week 43 , Oct 22, 2018 - Oct 28, 2018"

Do you suggest any idea for bypassing this bug?
