#132 Doesn't work in latest 11.0a1 nightly builds (x64)


It's been some time now that the toolbar icon doesn't work for viewing source code in any web page using custom default editor (notepad). The native editor works just fine though and so does the "Edit Text With" feature with my custom editor.

Is this a known issue with latest firefox builds? If not, how can I troubleshoot this further?

    Something has changed in Gecko, I don't understand if it's a regression or a "feature" (IMHO is a regression).

    No easy workaround is available at this time

    OK, at least now we have a ticket filed for it and it is a known issue ;)

    Please help me, I've found how to reproduce the regression without ViewSourceWith installed

    I've uninstalled VSW and set Firefox to open source with an external editor and I receive the same error and the external editor doesn't start

    set view_source.editor.external to true
    set view_source.editor.path to a full path (I used /usr/bin/gedit)

    On error console I see the same error that occurs with VSW

    I've filed a bug on bugzilla https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=703841

    If you agree with me please can confirm on bugzilla?
