Description Karl Marx 2021-06-23 13:32:54 UTC
I have a blog with a WYSIWYG HTML editor and copy the text to Writer to send it to someone. As soon as I insert the text in Writer, all relative urls are added with "http://".

First of all. 2021 is "https" default, so maybe its a better choice? See https://blog.chromium.org/2021/03/a-safer-default-for-navigation-https.html

However, in my case relative urls should not be replaced at all. It would nice to get a message box which ask to "complete" urls or not to change anything.

Steps to Reproduce:
Insert text (html code) with relative urls.

Actual Results:
"folder1/folder2" => "http://folder1/folder2"

Expected Results:
Give the user a choice. Ask with message box or dialog to change urls.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Karl, thanks for the report. Unfortunately, this is a lingering known issue that just hasn't been fixed. See bug 86785.
