Description Kevin Suo 2015-07-10 05:32:40 UTC
1) Open a document from within Firefox downloaded list, or from within Thunderbird attachments.
2) Notice the window title has '(read-only)' next to the document name, and there is a warning infobar which warns that the document is currently open in read-only mode.
3) Click the 'Edit Document' button in the infobar or the 'Edit File' button in the toolbar
4) Document is now in edit mode, but the text '(read-only)' is still in the window title.

This bug is similar to bug 87545 (which was already fixed). In bug 87545 the document is open using the file open dialog; in this bug I am reporting, the document is open from Firefox/Thunderbird.

Adding Stephan Bergmann to cc list, as he prepared the patch for bug 87545.

Setting to:

Trivial - it's not read-only, just a trivial wording issue

Lowest - default for trivial issues

My guess is this is inherited from OOo but I can't check that right now. If someone else could it'd be great to get the version field right (or add "regression" to keywords if it is in fact a regression)

Still happens with a recent master build:

Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 288c0920a8475f9f2c537212e04aa7649192ad8c
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-AU (en_AU.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

OOo 3.3 would require clicking the "edit file" button in the toolbar and would open a copy of the file in a new window, so it is not inherited. Probably just an implementation error.
