Description Bugcruncher 2014-07-25 06:04:04 UTC
Problem description: 
It should be possible to select a hyperlink target document by browsing for it, but it's impossible.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Do steps as per Bug 81729 - Unintuitive ftp Hyplerlink 
   Steps 1 ... 6, in step 2 additionally add a folder bookmark
   in File Dialog under Places (might be without shown name 
   if the document is not in a folder, but in the root of
   ftp location)
2. Now double click your bookmark for ftp location under "places"
   (FTP dialog appears with correct entries for folder, host,
    login, ...)
3. Click "OK" button
   Current behavior: Nothing taken for hyperlink. You may
                     select, doubleclick your document and
                     confirm all with OK, no hyperlink will be 
   Expected behavior: something useful, for example request to
                      click a document after step 3 for what a 
                      hyperlink will be created after some steps

This one might be a special case of Bug 81729
