Description Christopher M. Penalver 2011-04-06 19:07:08 UTC
Downstream bug may be found at:

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 10.10
Release: 10.10

2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-calc
  Installed: 1:3.3.2-1ubuntu2~maverick1
  Candidate: 1:3.3.2-1ubuntu2~maverick1
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.3.2-1ubuntu2~maverick1 0

apt-cache policy firefox
  Installed: 3.6.16+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.10.10.1
  Candidate: 3.6.16+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.10.10.1
  Version table:
 *** 3.6.16+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.10.10.1 0

3) What is expected to happen is when one performs via the Terminal:

firefox https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/350193/+attachment/516406/+files/test-data.html && localc -nologo

secondary click the center of the table in Firefox -> click Select All -> secondary click the center of the table in Firefox -> click Copy -> in Calc secondary click cell C7 -> click Paste

it does so quickly and successfully.

4) What happens instead is that it hangs Calc for a long time (15 seconds - 3 minutes) then pastes or hangs Calc indefinitely.

another one for you, Bjoern
Comment 2 Björn Michaelsen 2011-10-01 05:03:00 UTC
Works as expected with 3.4.3-3ubuntu1. Also the test document contains unresolvable links to host "some-url.no" so a certain delay has to be expected. => WORKSFORME
Comment 3 Björn Michaelsen 2011-10-01 05:03:43 UTC
To clarify: there is _no_ delay here with 3.4.3
