The application properly reported this as the "Last clipboard action" in the application's status area.

Starting with V3.30, "Browse to URL" copies the password to the clipboard only if a new option is set appropriately.

If that option is not set, "Browse to URL" leaves the clipboard unmodified.

But it reports "URL copied HH:MM:SS" as the "Last clipboard action."

"Browse to URL" should leave the "Last clipboard action" unmodified.

It would be wrong to fix this bug by changing "Browse to URL" to copy the selected entry's URL to the clipboard.

The recent change was motivated by the argument that users might not expect "Browse to URL" to copy an entry's password to the clipboard.

There is certainly no reason to think that a naive user will expect "Browse to URL" to copy an entry's URL to the clipboard - especially since the application has not done this before. In addition, some users may want "Browse to URL" to leave the clipboard unmodified (e.g., because they have already copied password or username to the clipboard).

    Nice catch - fixed in revision 5205.
