Description beimaginativeegroup 2012-08-19 17:16:03 UTC
Problem description: When you try to visit an external link from an extension author page, it results in a Not Found error. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to Extension Centre
2. Click on Extensions from the Menu
3. Choose an extension and load its page
4. Under the extension title there is a "By: Author" message. Click on the Author's name and the author profile will load.
5. In the author profile, there can be a link to the author's external home page under the profile picture. Click on it. 

Current behavior: After clicking the external page URL loads but as a page under extensions.libreoffice.org (e.g. extensions.libreoffice.org/my.test.url). This results in a Not Found error. 

Expected behavior: It should load the page normally. 

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0

Could you give the name of the extensions where you found this problem?

It affects all profiles which have an external link.
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-01-03 07:21:41 UTC
NOT Reproducible on
with Seamonkey 2.14.1 and FF 17.01

Please contribute info concerning an Author's page where the problem happens.

I think it's fixed. I can't reproduce it.
