#3741 closed defect (fixed)

Cannot enter a new destination in PDF tab in Browse - but URL entry bar looks like it can take one

Reported by: greenfeld Owned by: erikos
Priority: Normal Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Browse Version: 0.96.x
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: design, olpc-test-pending
Cc: manuq, humitos Distribution/OS: OLPC
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


  1. Open up a PDF in Browse.
  2. Switch to the PDF tab, and attempt to type in a new URL.
  3. While you can highlight the existing URL, you will not be able to type anything, The "X" button to clear the URL entry field appears but does not work.

If PDF tabs cannot be used to enter new URLs and we cannot easily fix them to make them take new URLs, we should make it clear that you cannot enter a new URL on a PDF tab.

Seen in Browse-140/12.1.0 os16.

How we should solve this issue? Should we give the user the possibility to enter a new url or not? How we should inform the user about this?

Pushed a fix, made the URL entry insensitive when the current tab is a PDF - commit 11c09800 .
